I have finally gotten cleanly through the configure step.  The 
documentation for postgres under section 15.5 gives the various 
options, one of which is the --with-libraries.  This option does not 
seem to work correctly for Solaris 10 with various packages added 
into /usr/local and /usr/local/ssl.  A previous response indicated 
that the use of LDFLAGS would solve this.  However, the documentation 
in section 15.5 does not give any indications or hisnts about what 
types of usage are possible.  Thus, the suggestion for putting in the 
following as a template:
"-R /usr/local/lib:/usr/sfw/lib..." was the ticket.  Thus, my script 
is as follows:

     LDFLAGS='-R /usr/local/lib:/usr/local/ssl/lib:/usr/sfw/lib:


The pertinent ENV vars are:



All of the necessary components with dependencies were brought in 
from sunfreeware and installed with pkgadd.
gcc=3.4.6 as the compiler and primary libgcc.
