After spending a few hours of trying to get Postgresql7.3.4 to build
from source (tar.gz) on a Panther (release, not beta) system, I find
that I am still having the same errors described in the original post
to this thread. It is a clean install as of yesterday, with readline
installed via fink.

# ./configure --with-includes=/sw/include/ --with-libraries=/sw/lib



yields this error at then end:

In file included from /usr/include/machine/param.h:30,
                 from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:67,
                 from ../../../../src/include/libpq/pqcomm.h:28,
                 from ../../../../src/include/libpq/libpq-be.h:24,
                 from ../../../../src/include/libpq/libpq.h:21,
                 from printtup.c:20:

only 1 given

I have installed the XCode tools that came with Panther and ran
Software update to get everything up to date. Is there another
(better?) way to fix this than altering the header files as James
inidcated in his original post? there is no /opt, so I don't think it
is a lingering library there.
