OK, I see it now:

  ERROR:  Load of file /u/pg/lib/ failed: Unable to resolve symbol
  ./bin/postmaster: can't resolve symbol 'plpgsql_yylineno'

Not sure about the cause.  I see the several references to that variable
as extern, but no non-extern references.  Does BSDI handle this
differently than other OS's?  If a library has no non-external
definition of a variable, a reference to the shared library would cause
such an error as above, right?

I am attaching a patch which defines plpgsql_yylineno as non-extern in
one of the files.  I am applying this to the current source tree too. 
That seems to fix most of the problems on bsdi.  I see in the regression
tests some strange stuff like:

QUERY: select * from PField_v1 where pfname = 'PF0_1' order by slotname;
NOTICE:  plpgsql: ERROR during compile of wslot_slotlink_view near line 1
ERROR:  parse error at or near "qR^F"

Not sure what is causing that.  My guess is that the there is still a
problem with the parser internals referenced by plpgsql on bsdi.  Please
try my patch, and let me know if it improves things.

Jan, any ideas?
