I am trying to compile Postgres 6.5.1 on my SGI using the -o32 option of
the MIPSpro C compiler (old 32 bit architecture; IRIX 6.5.4). I had
success with the previous versions of Postgres but this one seems to not
work. Namely, the configure, gmake all, and gmake install goes through.
But when I try to do initdb, the following error pops up:

o21:postgres::/usr/local/pgsql_o32/bin > initdb

10125:pg_id: rld: Fatal Error: Cannot Successfully map soname
'' under any of the filenames

Unable to determine a valid username.  If you are running
initdb without an explicit username specified, then there
may be a problem with finding the Postgres shared library
and/or the pg_id utility.

I mentioned this error a few days ago and originally thought that the
system just didn't know where to find However, now I am
wondering if it is finding it, but just doesn't like the fact that the
library is compiled in the old 32 bit architecture. Does anyone know if
6.5.1 can handle -o32 compilation?

I am going through the log files I created during gmake all and gmake
install but nothing obvious seems to show up on the lines that contain

I'd appreciate any thoughts.
