Hi,

I'm trying to compile PostgreSQL 7.1.3 on Redhat 7.1, and whenever I
define USE_AUSTRALIAN_RULES with :

export CFLAGS=-DUSE_AUSTRALIAN_RULES

When doing make I get the error "<command line>: warning: ISO C requires
whitespace after the macro name" after every invocation of gcc.  After a
while the whole process errors out with :

<command line>: warning: ISO C requires whitespace after the macro name
gcc -DUSE_AUSTRALIAN_RULE -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes

Checking in the config.log file, I see this :

Lots of messages like this.  The last few lines of config.log is :

On this server, I'm not the SysAdmin.  There's a good chance the
SysAdmin for the server has kept the number of packages on this server
to a minimum, so it's possible some needed program is missing.

Does anyone have any ideas?  Please bear in mind that everything
compiles fine without the -DUSE_AUSTRALIAN_FLAGS option.

Haven't tried current CVS, but it's an interesting thought (can't do it
on this server).

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
