So there are 4 open source SIP phone implementations besides kphone:
* minisip: Supports full privacy via TLS. Has its own tightly-related
libraries. Quite easy to port, *except* that the abstraction it uses to talk
to the sound driver doesn't work on NetBSD. This should be relatively easy
* SFLphone: This one looks pretty good from the description. It supports
encryption in some fashion or other. It needs an updated libosip (trivial;
I'd commit it myself were it not for the freeze), a port of libexosip, and a
port of some of the "Common C++" parts -- specifically, commoncpp and ccrtp.
This should be relatively straightforward.
* linphone: From the author of libosip and libexosip. I don't know much about
* sipXphone: This is part of a big project based on the Pingtel source tree,
which also includes a full SIP PBX implementation. This is probably the
ideal package to get running, but it needs Java for some parts.
I would dearly love it if someone would make a couple of these fit in pkgsrc.
I can provide assistance as necessary (especially on the Java part).
