Hi Peter 

I have the same problem and I have posted several messages already
this is apparently caused by using gcc as a compiler.
Nobody was yet able to tell me how to circumvent the problem
or where I can get a binary version.

The psql and perl client works on my Indy but the database is 
no reachable.
