I'm having a lot of difficulty in getting Postgres v6.4.2 and 6.5 to compile
Perl support.

I've managed to build and install without Perl support.

headers/files) required by Pg.c in the interfaces/Perl5 directory.

V 6.5 didn't include the file. With v6.4.2 I've tried copying the libpq/ to
libraries included in the compiler include directive

I'm running Redhat 5.2 Linux, 2.0.36 kernel, Perl 5.003, gcc
