HI all,
I'm trying to compile PostgreSQL 9.0.3 on FreeBSD 8.1-stable, and I can make 
it working if I compile without dtrace. However when I compile with --enable-
dtrace I'm unable to use the cluster and even initdb.
In particular initdb claims that:

fgets failure: No such file or directory
The program "postgres" is needed by initdb but was not found in the
same directory as "/usr/local/pgsql/bin/initdb".
Check your installation

but digging a little I found that the problem is when a pipe to postgres -V 
process is created, since the latter goes in SIGFAULT. The following is the 
truss of the postgres command:

and this is the output of ldd:

/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postgres:
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x2849e000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x284b8000)

I checked that dtrace -l gives me output, so it seems to work. Am I doing 
something wrong?

Thanks,
Luca
