Good day,

I work in an environment where we have multiple Sun boxes running
various databases such as oracle, Sybase etc. However I would like to
evaluate PostgreSQL as an alternative database system on sun hardware
and software. However I can't seem to get Postgres to compile on any of
our Sun servers, are there any precompiled recent versions of PostreSql
available ? Do you have an updated version of the
installation/compilation of Postgres on Solaris 8 or 9? Any help would
be greatly appreciated.

    Which version of Solaris? Which compiler and version? Which version
    of PostgreSQL? What ./configure options did you specify? Does the
    build fail during ./configure or during the compile? What errors
    are displayed? PostgreSQL requires GNU make (gmake) -- are you
    using it?

    I've built several versions of PostgreSQL on Solaris 9 with gcc 3.4.2
    and gmake 3.80 without any problems.
