> [ more numbers ] OK, this looks good to me. Just to make sure everyone's on the same page, what I propose to do is simplify all our platform-specific Makefiles that use either -fpic or -fPIC to use -fPIC unconditionally. This affects the netbsd, linux, and openbsd ports. Looks like we should also change the example link commands in dfunc.sgml. Next question: should we back-patch this change, or just do it in HEAD? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
