First of all thanks for this great RDBMS tool. I'm using it to build a JDBC based tool. 

I found some minor problems during installation:

- install doc: /bin/zcat does not work for .gz files
	On Solaris 2.6 the /bin/zcat binary only handles 'compress'ed 
	files. I had to install the documantation by hand using 
	gzip -cd <doc_file> | tar xvf -

- Compile Warnings
	Although you wrote to not report compile warnings I picked just 
	these two warnings below because I think they maybe could be a 
	source of very tricky bugs (and they are easy to fix) ...

	gcc -I../../../include -I../../../backend -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -I../.. -c nbtcompare.c -o nbtcompare.o
	nbtcompare.c: In function `btoid8cmp':
	nbtcompare.c:98: warning: suggest explicit braces to avoid ambiguous `else'

	gcc -I../../../include -I../../../backend -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -I../.. -c psort.c -o psort.o
	psort.c: In function `initialrun':
	psort.c:351: warning: suggest explicit braces to avoid ambiguous `else'

	PostgreSQL 6.4.2
	Solaris 2.6 SPARC
	gcc 2.8.1
	GNU Make version 3.76.1
	flex version 2.5.4

I hope this helps you to improve PostreSQL
