Hi,

I've successfully built PostgreSQL 8.0.0
on SPARC/Solaris (7), with gcc-3.2.2.
Hardware is SPARCstation 5, 170 MHz.

Because it doesn't build optimally right
out of the box, I'd like to provide you
with some feed-back.

 From my understanding, the preferred way
for Solaris is to only set LD_RUN_PATH,
and avoid setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, at
link-time. This is what I usually do.

Should you need information about this
then please have a look at:

http://www.visi.com/~barr/ldpath.html
Why LD_LIBRARY_PATH is bad


During the build, I had the following
issues:

1). If I run './configure --with-pam --with-ssl' with
     LD_RUN_PATH = '/usr/local/ssl/lib:/usr/local/lib'
     configure will fail to find the ssl libs, if I do
     not have LD_LIBRARY_PATH set.

2). If I do set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, './configure ...' will
     not find OpenSSL's include files.

3). Thus, to configure/build with OpenSSL, using only
     LD_RUN_PATH, i have to explicitly specify the paths
     to OpenSSL's libraries and include files.

4). 'make install' fails unless LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set.

Please see the attached log file showing these issues
in deatail.

Please feel free to contact me if you should need more
information.


Hope this information helps you to improve the
installation procedures for PostgreSQL even more.


Thank you all! for your efforts, and for providing
providing this excellent piece of software.


Kind Regards,
Rolf Sponsel
