Hopefully, they will be applied soon.

The above should *not* be necessary.  Did you forget to configure
--with-python?  See attached for the output of my make.

Good that is one of things that my patch fixes.

I get lots of warnings too as you can see from my make output.  Note
that I get the same warnings under Linux too.

The above is solved by my first patch -- the one for pgmodule.  I had
assumed that you had already applied it.  You can find it here:

Sorry, I'm not qualified to answer the above, but I hope so.

I should have included patch instructions but I was lazy.

To apply plpython.patch perform the following:

    $ # save patch to /tmp/plpython.patch
    $ cd src
    $ patch -p0 </tmp/plpython.patch

To apply pgpy.patch perform the following:

    $ # save patch to /tmp/pgpy.patch
    $ cd src/interfaces/python
    $ patch </tmp/pgpy.patch
