Yes. PgAccess need libpgtcl.so and libpq.so to be in the system /lib
PostgreSQL 6.3.2 had a little bug that was quickly fixed. He didn't
define LINUX_ELF and the Makefile refused to generate the shared
A quick patch is to edit those Makefile's in src/interfaces/libpq and
src/interfaces/libpgtcl.so and insert a single line at the begining
LINUX_ELF = true.
Also, I understood that an official patch for this bug has been
In RedHat 5.0, they decided to move the crypt function used by postgres
from the libc library to a separate library libcrypt.so You will need
to add -lcrypt when linking libpgtcl.
