Please enter a FULL description of your problem:

I was able to successfully compile
postogresql-8.0-beta (make check reporteed "Passed all
96 tests").  However, it appears that postresql was
compiled with the wrong value of --pkglibdir: rather
than libdir = $PREFIX/lib it was compiled with libdir
= $PREFIX/bin/lib, but make install put "lib/" in
$PREFIX/lib.  This might have been as issue with the
"share/" dir as well as I have to give the -L option
to initdb and ln -s ../lib lib in $PREFIX bin, before
initdb returned success.


Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please
try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:
