    Hi everyone.

    I am new to postgres.   I need a relational db that can be used with
a web client
from any plataform, and this seems to be it, BUT.....

    Our lab has ONLY sgi machines.   Indigo 2s running Irix 6.2, an
Origin 200 running
IRIX 6.4,  and a lonely Indigo running IRIX 5.3 !!!

    I have read about all the problems with the ld on IRIX 6.2 and
6.4,   and try to follow the
installation instructions, and did not have any luck on all 3
systesms.   Here is a little summary
of what I did !!!   BTW, these systems are patched up with the latest
patches, so, it has the
latest compilers, on the 6.2 and 6.4, and 5.3 has the latest of what it
can have ( I think it is 7.1 for
the c compiler, but I am not sure there ).

    ANyways, I installed gmake and GNU readline, but could not find
GNU install !!!  I looked on the
GNU page, and it is not there !!!   ANybody knows ?????

    Thenm I created the postgres account, logged in, and did a configure
with the --prefix and where
the location of the src directory is.    Then, issue the gmake all   and
I get a bunch of warnings and
it compiles for a while, and then, I get these errors !!!!!

    SO !!!!!      Any help ?   Did anybody had some luck with SGIs ?
How do I get rid of this errors,
and or warnings ?     Since I do not have much experience with unix
compilation,   I am in a loss
here !!  My boss wants this up and running ASAP, or else, he will buy a
windoze app, argh !!!!!!

    If anybody has binaries, it would be nice to have them uploaded to
the postgres site !!!!!
