Doing a default ./configure (no additional options) on a freshly installed OpenBSD 2.9 results in a 'psql' binary that isn't linked to termcap.  The error looks like this:

$ ./psql
Welcome to psql, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type:  \copyright for distribution terms
       \h for help with SQL commands
       \? for help on internal slash commands
       \g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
       \q to quit

/usr/libexec/ld.so: Undefined symbol "_tgetent" called from psql:/usr/lib/librea
dline.so.0.0 at 0x40088964
$

-----snip-----

"_tgetent" is a termcap symbol, and simply appending

-ltermcap

...to the final gcc command during the 'psql' make fixes the problem.  This should probably work w/o human intervention, however.  :-)


PostgreSQL rocks!
