With this hints I controlled the permissions and it seems that this is not the 
problem. All files are readable for ugo. Nevertheless I tried to configure as 
root but I got the same result. 
I then tried to configure doing
./configure --with-pgsql-include=/usr/include/pgsql  
--with-pgsql=/var/lib/pgsql (and others --with-pgsql= which as I supposed 
could serve, using always --with-pgsql-include=/usr/include/pgsql)
but I am always left with 'configure: error: you must specify a valid pgsql 
installation with --with-pgsql=DIR'
As I don't know what configure is looking for when it's 'checking for PQexec' 
and I read on the screen (above the last error-message): 'PQexec in -lpq ... 
I tried to read the configure-file and the config.log-file but I must confess 
I could not find the answer. Attached once more the config.log.
Thanks in advance
