I have cross compiled PostgreSQL 8.0.1 on i386-linux system for
i386-linux-ulibc. Compilation went through smoothly for the most part.
I had a minor issue with the timezone libary (src/timezone). During
installation of this library it tries to runs zic (seem
src/timezone/Makefile). However, since zic binary is included as a
(cross)compilation target (make all), zic ends up being cross
compiled. And, therefore, can not be used on the host system to
A simple solution to this problem is to remove target zic from 'all'
and add it to 'install' target. see attached patch.
Please let me know if there is a better way to solve this problem.
