	ecpg isn't a seperate package, so this isn't really an alternative
in this case :(  

	The above problem is more an annoyance then anything, and, quite
frankly, I don't understand enough about yacc/bison to work out where.
Well, I understand more now then when I started, but still have a long way
to go.  Next Nutshell book, I fear :)

	I'm going to do a run through of the code again tomorrow at work,
on the two Solaris boxes, and check for compiler problems...

	Jan, how goes the pg_shadow stuff?  I believe we still have
breakage in initdb, but Bruce is waiting for that patch before
investigating further?
