                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE

Your name               :       Kevin Buckley
Your email address      :	k(dot)buckley(at)lancaster(dot)ac(dot)uk

System Configuration
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)         :   SUN Ultra-60

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF)  :   Solaris 7

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.5.3):   PostgreSQL-6.5.3 

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)           :   gcc-2.95.2

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:

We have the GNU readline library outside of the "system" directories,
in /usr/local/packages/readline.
Attempting to tell configure where to find the includes and libs by use
of --with-include= and --with-lib= works except that when the OBDC interface
is being made the expected -L directive is not passed into that directory's
make environment and the making of fails thus

ld -G  -o info.o bind.o columninfo.o connection.o convert.o
drvconn.o environ.o execute.o lobj.o misc.o options.o pgtypes.o psqlodbc.o 
qresult.o results.o socket.o parse.o statement.o gpps.o tuple.o tuplelist.o 
dlg_specific.o  -lgen -lcrypt -lnsl -lsocket -ldl -lm -lreadline -ltermcap 
-lcurses  -ldl -lsocket -lresolv -lnsl -lm -lc
ld: fatal: library -lreadline: not found

Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 

Try placing the readline library outside of the "system" area
and configuring as detailed above

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:

Compiling by hand created the library and allowed a full compilation
but I guess that the real answer is to:

Fix the Makefiles to percolate the -L directive down into the ODBC
interface Makefiles. Reference is made to a LDFLAGS_ODBC within there.

Apologies for not being able to look further into this at this time,
