Hi Everyone


This is my first post, so please make me aware of mistakes. I'm also quite
new to linux, so please be very clear and thorough in your answers - thanks.

I'm working with a postgreSQL database, which I must install on a powerpc.
The OS of the powerpc does not contain a compiler, so I need to cross
compile it on a ordinary linux and then copy it to the powerpc. But when I
type "make" I get the following error:


make -C doc all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/doc'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/doc'
make -C src all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src'
make -C port all
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src/port'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/postgresql-8.1.4/src/port'

My installation script looks like this:

# Script for compiling postgreSQL for use
# on a power pc.
make clean
echo -n Compiling postgreSQL to "$DESTDIR" for ...
./configure --host=$HOST --prefix=$PREFIX --exec-prefix=$PREFIX
--without-zlib --bindir=$EPREFIX/bin --sbindir=$EPREFIX/sbin
--libexecdir=$EPREFIX/libexec --datadir=$PREFIX/share
--sysconfdir=$PREFIX/etc --sharedstatedir=$PREFIX/com
--localstatedir=$PREFIX/var --libdir=$EPREFIX/lib
--includedir=$PREFIX/include --oldincludedir=$PREFIX/include
--infodir=$PREFIX/info --mandir=$PREFIX/man --without-readline || exit

#make check
make || exit

make install || exit

echo done!
echo -n Compilation complete
# ...end of the script.


I maybe found some of the answer at:


But I can't figure that out. Could anyone explain me the solution?


Can anyone help me?


Regards Lars
