I'm running FreeBSD 6.2 and I have Postgresql 8.2.4 installed with
Perl v5.8.8. I'm trying to test DBD-Pg-2.8.7 after compilation and I
get this error after 'make test':

At first I was getting 'Undefined symbol "PQserverVersion"' error
during 'make test' and it complained about not being able to find
libpq.so.5 I believe. I fixed that by putting '/usr/local/pgsql/lib'
in ld.so.conf and running ldconfig so that it could find that file.
Then I also included '/usr/local/lib' in that file, which is the path
to libpq.so.3, but its acting like it still can't find it, as you see
above. It seems that I can't prioritize between searching between
these two directories. It varies between errors for not finding
libpq.so.5 or libpq.so.3. I can't seem to provide both library files
at the same time. Using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable
doesn't seem to help this issue either. I've included both library
directories (separately by a colon, if that's correct) and its no
Now, of course, I've googled this and nothing is helping at this
point. Does anyone have any other pointers? Is this a FreeBSD thing
possibly? I'd *much* appreciate some help here!
