  I am getting an error while running gmake on postgres8.2.4. Here is the list of steps that I followed
  Platform is Solaris 10 for x86 
  1. Downloaded  postgresql-8.2.4.tar from
  2. gunzip postgresql-8.2.4.tar.gz
  3. tar -xvf postgresql-8.2.4.tar
  4. cd postgresql-8.2.4
  5. executed configure first, it was giving readline error therefore used configure --without-readline
  6. The error that I am getting is
  bash-3.00$ gmake
