Hello All-
I am a little new to Postgres. The archives didn't
give me enough info. Thanks in advance for helping.

"Could not execute a simple test program.....
Yes - I have LD_Library_Path in my environment
variable. I also added the library
locations(--with-libraries=/usr/lib:etc..)
I installed readline. Got Bison. It sees my Flex
2.5.4. It sees a working Ant.
./configure --prefix=/export/yadda/yadda --with-java
--with-libraries=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib

I looked through the config.log and saw stuff like
this:

to conftest
