Hi All,

I am trying to compile Postgresql-7.3.4 with the following flags:

../configure --prefix=$(E4LDIR) --with-pgport=5433 --with-python
--with-includes=$(E4LDIR)/include/python2.3-e4l --with-libra
ries=$(E4LDIR)/lib/python2.3-e4l && \

This gives me the following compilation error:
Anyone any clues?
Thanks for any reply!
