I just loaded the Nov 6 sparc snapshot on an SS-20, including the
package for postgresql-7.0.2. Very nice - I had been hand installing
postgresql and learned some tricks from the package.
Command line history is really nice in the psql tool.
It is not in the present package due to history.h not being present
in /usr/include/readline. (This is an old bug in the release.)
The patch offered in bug report #1478 (fixing the install: target for
gnu/usr.bin/binutils/readline/Makefile.in to copy history.h along with
the other headers) should be applied to 2.8. If this is done, the
package builds with working readline support.
