Hi Peter,

I have postgresql-7.0.3 source files loaded on the AIX box. I will try
7.1RC4 as you suggested but have to download the source at home and carry it
to work to do so. Today's a public holiday here.

In the meantime, I tried compiling postgresql-7.0.3 on AIX

Ran ./configure --without-CXX

then ran gmake (GNU make ver 3.79.1) and got following error:

# gmake
Making postgres.imp
./backend/port/aix/ postgres /usr/local/pgsql/bin >
nm: postgres: 0654-200 Cannot open the specified file.
nm: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
xlc -Wl,-bE:./backend/postgres.imp -o postgres
 ../utils/version.o -lPW -lcrypt
-lld -lnsl -ldl -lm -ltermcap -lcurses
xlc: 1501-228 input file ../utils/version.o not found
gmake: *** [postgres.imp] Error 252

Any ideas?

4.something, I don't remember, but can check. Anyway, neither compile
worked. I was using the c compiler that came with AIX. Using the patch sent
to the list by Peter Eisentraut, will the compilation work on 3.2.5 with the
default compiler, or will I have to install GCC. Also, any other hints will
be appreciated. By the way, how do you apply this patch, anyway.
