I'm building 8.4beta1 on Mac OS X 10.5.6. I have ossp-uuid installed  
with its includes in /usr/local/include/ossp-uuid. I'm building  
PostgreSQL like so:

export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include/ossp-uuid"
./configure --with-libedit-preferred --with-bonjour --with-perl PERL=/ 
user/local/bin/perl \
--with-openssl --with-pam --with-krb5 --with-libxml --with-ldap --with- 
ossp-uuid \
--with-libs=/usr/local/lib --with-includes=/usr/local/include -- 

Configure generates this warning:

checking uuid.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: uuid.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: uuid.h:     check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: uuid.h: see the Autoconf documentation
configure: WARNING: uuid.h:     section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"

configure: WARNING:     ## Report this to pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org ##
configure: WARNING:     ## ---------------------------------------- ##
checking for uuid.h... yes

I guess it's finding Apple's uuid.h and not OSSP's? Do I need to set  
some other environment variable to tell PostgreSQL where to find the  
ossp uuid include?

BTW, I moved OSSP's uuid.h because it caused conflicts with other apps  
that just need Apple's uuid.h. This is a known issue for OSSP UUID:
