Hi,

I tried to compile PG8.3b4 for a test run on a R/S 6K running AIX 4.3
(powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.3.0)
(Of course, make was replaced with a compiled verstion of GNUmake)

Here are the step by step operations once having detarred the package

1 - Edition of ./src/include/pg_config_manual.h
Setting BLCKSZ to 16384 (has to get records from a mainframe)

2 - ./configure --prefix=/tmp/pg83b4 --without-readline --without-zlib

3 - make

3.1 - First error happens when compiling tsquery.c

xlc -O2 -qmaxmem=16384 -qsrcmsg -qlonglong -qnoansialias -I../../../../src/include
-c -o tsquery.o tsquery.c
108 | PT_CLOSE = 5,
....................a
a - 1506-275 (S) Unexpected text ',' encountered.

The file shows :

/*
* token types for parsing
*/
typedef enum
{
PT_END = 0,
PT_ERR = 1,
PT_VAL = 2,
PT_OPR = 3,
PT_OPEN = 4,
PT_CLOSE = 5,
} ts_tokentype;

3.2 - I manually removed the offending comma and carried on the building
process (expecting a major flaw to be detected at the 'make check' stage

Then the building process stops on ecpg/informix.c

-I../../../../src/interfaces/libpq -I../../../../src/include/utils -I../../../../src/include

I ll try again, time permitting, tomorrow with the newly uploaded RC1. I
had no problem with 8.2.5 and 8.1.10.

    Some compilers are picky about extra commas in enum lists, some aren't.
    I guess we have not currently got any in the buildfarm that are.

    The problem here seems to be that informix.c was violating our coding
    rule that no system headers may be included before c.h (or in this case,
    postgres_fe.h). Please change the first few lines of the file to
    this ordering:

    #define POSTGRES_ECPG_INTERNAL
    #include "postgres_fe.h"

    #include <math.h>
    #include <ctype.h>
    #include <limits.h>

    #include <ecpgtype.h>
    ...

    and see if it doesn't work then.

    BTW, it seems we do not have any buildfarm members running xlc.
    If you can spare the cycles to build PG once a day or so, please
    consider joining the buildfarm so these types of portability issues
    can be caught sooner.

    Hi,

    Thanks. The build for 8.3RC1 worked and all regression tests were passed.
