Err, no. I mis-read your post. I provided you a solution to the *next*
problem you are going to have :-)

I'm don't see why postgres.exe would not be found if you've set your path
correctly. Are you working from cvs or a recent snapshot? There's been quite
a few changes to this code recently and perhaps you've gotten an
inconsistent set of changes...

Like I said, this stuff should hopefully be sorted in a couple days.

Cheers,
Claudio
