On RedHat 8.0 (upgraded from Red Hat 7.2 with PostgreSQL 7.2.3), "make
check" gives the following error:

al/pgsql/bin/pg_encoding: relocation error:
l/pgsql/bin/pg_encoding: undefined symbol: pg_char_to_encoding
createdb: "SQL_ASCII" is not a valid encoding name
pg_regress: createdb failed"

./configure line was:
CFLAGS='-O2 -pipe' ./configure --enable-integer-datetimes --with-perl
--with-python --with-tcl --enable-syslog

On a different machine, I have successfully compiled and installed running
RedHat 8.0 (but without an existing PostgreSQL installation) and passed all

Any help with this problem would be much appreciated.

It should have worked, but edit Makefile.shlib and remove that offending
export from the link line.  That may fix it.
