It's really written as part of OpenBSD so it has some dependencies on other
things in the OS, for example the imsg functions which are now in libutil,
and several features (mpls vpns, etc) rely on things in the OpenBSD kernel
which aren't in other OS. If you're trying to use it on other OS then
something like the FreeBSD port might be a useful starting point as they
will have already removed some of the things which are more tightly tied
to OpenBSD.

Btw - depending on exactly what you want to do with BGP, you might be
interested in ExaBGP. It isn't a general purpose routing daemon but has a
lot of facilities for route injection, flow route handling, exporting
routes to other programs etc, which standard routing daemons don't have.
