Ack - you're making this too hard!  Just use the port or package!  If
you have the ports directory you'll first need to upgrade the port from
ftp.freebsd.org.  You can do this by just using cvsup or just manually get
the port info from ftp.freebsd.org.  Replace the CD port with the current
one in /usr/ports/x11/afterstep then make install.  Since you already
have the source code, put it in its untar-gzip'ed form in
/usr/ports/distfiles and you won't have to go get it again during the
make process.  It should then compile itself w/ the correct FreeBSD
patches. 

The other option is to just get the package.  Go to
ftp.freebsd.org and cd pub/FreeBSD/packages/x11, get afterstep.tar.gz and
then just pkg_add the package.
