Hmmm - the same environment except 'bison' and it compiles out of the box. I gotta
Added bison = GNU Bison version 1.28
Same configure as before:
Sure enough, it did compile right out of the box. I don't know if this is true on
all systems, but I see that this happens on the HP systems as well (recently in
pgsql-ports mail list). Perhaps a brief note in the INSTALL document near the
comments about flex would be in order?
I still fail in the regression tests on the 'rules'. The following is from

The previous test rules appear to be working correctly. Any ideas on what is
happening here? As I am not using rules currently, I do not believe I'll take the
time to track this down further at this time.
My comment on the port being occupied has been tracked down to a commercial Batch
Queue we use for distributing our load over 2 dozen Alphas. It is called "LSF
Batch" by Platform Computing (www.platform.com). They use TCP/IP port 5432 for
coordinating the batch jobs. I haven't looked into whether they can be configured
onto another port as I know that Postgresql can.
