I'm trying to setup Asterisk, and one of the pre-installation tasks is setting up zaptel. I get the message that I need to install the FreeBSD kernel source code to /usr/src. When I run make buildworld I get the message make: don't know how to make buildworld. Stop

I'm a bit new to FreeBSD so I have no clue on how to proceed. Any ideas are appreciated.

The problem is you don't have any files to build. Start with obtaining the kernel source codes.
Then use link petre provided or use this one
