What I was trying to say was "if you don't want to include gettext in the main download, perhaps splitting all the dev files into a separate package would permit you to add gettext and the rest". I don't much like the fact that presently users have to go hunting for the libraries, with not even a pointer included in the sources about where they should look to find headers matching the shipped libraries, and what version they need. Why _not_ distribute gettext headers, though? Sources I can understand for size reasons, but the headers are small and fuss free, and you need the _right_ _versions_ to build against the Pg backend. -- Craig Ringer -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
