Hmm, I guess this makes sense. A tree obtained from a shipped tarball has "make distprep" already run, which means it contains a bunch more files than clean Git workspace -- probably errcodes.h among them, for example. This smells like a makefile bug of some kind to me. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
