This is really a general question about make that has nothing to do with PostgreSQL specifically; you might want to get a book on "make". Makefiles in subdirectories of src/backend are only intended to be able to build the backend itself, so there's probably no particularly easy way to do what you want there. You likely want to put this code someplace like src/test/hdfs_test and copy one of the other Makefiles into the new directory, perhaps src/test/isolation/Makefile. But even if you do that for starters, you're going to need to make some modifications, which may be a bit tricky if you have no experience at all using make. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
