Hello Aditya,

from what I discovered I fear you have to do some additional porting
work as the building produces several errors. Please try "make
--keep-going ..." to see them all and get about 2000 lines of warnings
and errors (mostly from cryptopp). The most suspicious messages from
ndn-cxx are

For the first issue please have a look at the following lines in

   8  #ifdef OS_RNG_AVAILABLE
 155  #endif

It seems the define is not set in your case and so the contents of the
header are not includes in the build. To find this kind of problems I
suggest to modify the compilation of the broken source file to just do
the preprocessor step (compiler flag -E) and analyze the result. In
your case I was looking for AutoSeededRandomPool, which was not there.

Good luck
