FAQ
Trying to install PostgreSQL on Mac OS X (10.2.6), I get an error message:

checking for readline... no
configure: error: readline library not found
If you have readline already installed, see config.log for details on the
failure. It is possible the compiler isn't looking in the proper directory.
Use --without-readline to disable readline support.


I downloaded and compiled the realine function from GNU, ran the
postgrSQL ./configure command again and got the same error.

I then tried the ./configure command with --without-readline and this
time it worked.

Can anyone tell me why the installer didin't locate the readline
library when I had downloaded and compiled it?

Also, I am now trying to run make on the postgres installer and I get
all these other errors, see below...

I feel like I just haven't got all the include files but I don't know
where to look.
