The args I passed to the script were the ones that the compilation
instructions on the web suggest: --enable-static and --enable-debug

I'll be able to check it tomorrow, when I'll use Pgadmin intensively, but
yes, apparently it works ;)

Sorry, I forgot to answer this question, but I wrote it on my first message
here ;) My first attempt was on a Debian Woody, but because I couldn't
compile there and I had an old Postgresql version (7.1.something), I tried
it on a Mandrake 9.1 that I have on my secondary disk with Postgresql 7.4. I
got the same "undefined reference" errors on both. Finally I got it compiled
on Mandrake, using your patch.

Ok, I'll send the log and a description of my problems.
