What's new feature ? PGXS break when 19e231b was commited, the patch around this special submake is trying to bugfix that. See http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/201305281410.32535.ced...@2ndquadrant.com There are also reports like this one (and thread): http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/cabrt9rcj6rvgmxbyebcgymwbwiobko_w6zvwrzn75_f+usp...@mail.gmail.com where you can read that I am not 'the' only guy who want to have this commited. And believeing this is worth a backpatch as it stands for a bugfix. Here also the problem is stated as something to fix. http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/20130516165318.gf15...@eldon.alvh.no-ip.org That's being said, you are correct about the problem you found and it's good to be able to release new version without a bug for OSX. I'm just sad you didn't get time to voice a bit before Andrew spent too much time on that. -- Cédric Villemain +33 (0)6 20 30 22 52 http://2ndQuadrant.fr/ PostgreSQL: Support 24x7 - Développement, Expertise et Formation
