This is an alpha version of NetBSD 1.5.

System is a fairly stock PowerMac 7500 with a 604 CPU upgrade, 
original disk drive.  The Perl is from the NetBSD package system, 
version 5.004_04.  egcs-1.1.2 (as modified by BSD).

postgresql 7.0.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with perl --with-x

First problem:  ODBC doesn't compile.  |-(

Second problem:  with elf binaries the location of shared libraries 
is supposed to be compiled in so each program can reference its own 
set of shared objects without conflict.  This doesn't seem to jibe 
with how the build/install makefiles do things.  I get missing shared 
libraries when I try to access the DB as a normal user, and the 
mechanism I would have used to fix this on an xcoff system is 
deleted, or at least deprecated, on an elf system.

There is a package for postgres and it seems to do something 
different w.r.t. shared libraries.  OTOH I can't get the regression 
tests to run with the package even though psql works fine.  (The 
error is 'installing PL/pgSQL .. createlang: cannot find the file 

Third problem:  well actually the regression tests seem to work, mostly.  ;-)

Regression results:
	geometry failed with a number of roundoff differences and a 
-0 difference.
	opr_sanity, type_sanity, oidjoins, and rules all failed with 
the build having error messages where some kind of results were 
	All other tests passed (including random?!?!).

If Tom L. wants to beat on this I can give him an account on the 
machine.  I've used up the time I have to devote to it.  I'm pretty 
much stuck with 6.4.0 on Solaris 2.5 for real work.

Signature failed Preliminary Design Review.
Feasibility of a new signature is currently being evaluated.
