Description Garrett Wollman 2005-05-11 00:30:03 UTC
postgresql80-{server,client} tries to force configure to use the specified
Kerberos implementation by putting the libraries in LDFLAGS.  This is wrong;
in order for libpq to be linked properly, the libraries need to end up in
configure's LIBS variable instead.


Workaround: edit the makefile to add $(LDFLAGS) to the $(filter ..., $(LIBS))
in src/libpq and rebuild libpq.so.4.
Build postgresql80-client.  Notice how things that use libpq fail to link
because of unresolved dependencies.

A (brute force) patch is available from


Drop the patch-* file into postgresql80-clients/files/ and rebuild/ 
reinstall and then

     /usr/local/etc/rc.d/010.pgsql.sh stop
     /usr/local/etc/rc.d/010.pgsql.sh start

Note: I also run this patch against postgresql80-server. I'm not sure  
that it's strictly necessary to do so, but it doesn't seem to break

Fixed this by not using the base heimdal. While I can get 
postgresql to linke with it, I cannot get ports using libpq.so 
to link with that installation. Depend on a Kerberos port instead. 
See CVS comment in postgresqlXX-server/Makfile for more info.
