I think you guys may be misinterpreting what's happening: this behavior
is not platform-sensitive, it is path-sensitive.  In particular, the
configure script will interpolate /postgresql into some of the
installation paths unless the given path already contains "postgres"
or "pgsql".  On some of my machines I build working versions into
/home/postgres, and there I get paths like
and on others I build into /home/tgl and get paths like

So what I think is happening is that Magnus is getting fooled by which
username he builds under.  The thing to standardize on is the full
path you want the stuff to install in (and make sure it doesn't mention
postgres twice).
