I'm having difficulty compiling PostgreSQL 8.1.5 with 64-bit  
instructions on a G5 running Mac OS X Server 10.4.8.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pgsql --enable-thread-safety CFLAGS='- 
O2 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Winline -Wdeclaration- 
after-statement -Wendif-labels -fno-strict-aliasing -mcpu=970 - 
mtune=970 -mpowerpc64 -mpowerpc-gpopt -arch ppc64' --without-readline  
--without-zlib

I had to specify --without-readline and --without-zlib, because they  
are presumably 32-bit on the system. The following error occurs when  
calling configure as above:

checking thread safety of required library functions... no
configure: error:
*** Thread test program failed.  Your platform is not thread-safe.
*** Check the file 'config.log'for the exact reason.

And the config.log has the following:

configure:22595: gcc -no-cpp-precomp -o conftest -O2 -Wall -Wmissing- 
prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Winline -Wdeclaration-after-statement - 
Wendif-labels -fno-strict-aliasing -mcpu=970 -mtune=970 -mpo
werpc64 -mpowerpc-gpopt -arch ppc64 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes - 
Wpointer-arith -Winline -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wendif-labels - 
fno-strict-aliasing  -D_REENTRANT -D_THREAD_SAFE -D_POSIX_PTHR
EAD_SEMANTICS -DIN_CONFIGURE     conftest.c -lresolv -ldl -lm   >&5
In file included from conftest.c:131:
./src/tools/thread/thread_test.c:141: error: parse error before  
'platform_is_threadsafe'
./src/tools/thread/thread_test.c:141: warning: type defaults to 'int'  
in declaration of 'platform_is_threadsafe'
...

and line 141 of thread_test.c is:
static bool platform_is_threadsafe = true;

So I changed thread_test.c (lines 27 - 29) from

#ifndef bool
typedef char bool;
#endif

to

#undef bool
#ifndef bool
typedef char bool;
#endif

and then the configure went through successfully.

On to make. When I tried to make, I got the following errors:

In file included from ../../src/include/postgres.h:48,
                  from copydir.c:19:
../../src/include/c.h:194: error: parse error before '*' token
../../src/include/c.h:194: warning: type defaults to 'int' in  
declaration of 'BoolPtr'
../../src/include/c.h:194: warning: data definition has no type or  
storage class

So, then I made a similar change to c.h as I did to thread_test.c by  
adding #undef bool before #ifndef bool.

and then make goes a lot further and comes up with a ton of "warning:  
type defaults to 'int' in declaration of ..." errors. A full log of  
the errors follow below. Any PostgreSQL developer have access to a G5  
OS X box where they can specify 'arch ppc64' in the CFLAGS? Or, any  
ideas I can try to get PostgreSQL 8.1.5 compiled with 64-bit  
instructions on a G5 running OS X Tiger with the 'arch ppc64' flag?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.
