Hi Tom,

Thank you for a hint. It was a Midnight Commander bug. MC uncompress 
sources into three separate directories.
I have uncompressed the 8.3.1 archive with bzip -d and tar -xvf (one 
directory !)
and compiled succesfully. It seems to be a Midnight Commander not 
PostgreSQL problem.

Regards
Rony
