First of all thanks for this great RDBMS tool. I'm using it to build a JDBC based tool.
I found some minor problems during installation:
- install doc: /bin/zcat does not work for .gz files
On Solaris 2.6 the /bin/zcat binary only handles 'compress'ed
files. I had to install the documantation by hand using
gzip -cd <doc_file> | tar xvf -
- Compile Warnings
Although you wrote to not report compile warnings I picked just
these two warnings below because I think they maybe could be a
source of very tricky bugs (and they are easy to fix) ...
gcc -I../../../include -I../../../backend -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -I../.. -c nbtcompare.c -o nbtcompare.o
nbtcompare.c: In function `btoid8cmp':
nbtcompare.c:98: warning: suggest explicit braces to avoid ambiguous `else'
gcc -I../../../include -I../../../backend -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -I../.. -c psort.c -o psort.o
psort.c: In function `initialrun':
psort.c:351: warning: suggest explicit braces to avoid ambiguous `else'
I WAS USING:
Solaris 2.6 SPARC
GNU Make version 3.76.1
flex version 2.5.4
I hope this helps you to improve PostreSQL
