The subject line says it all.

I just completed a build, test, and install of PostgreSQL 8.1.4 on an Intel Mac with OS 10.4.8.  Every single step executed flawlessly, and all 98 tests passed, running the regression tests.

I've got a suggestion for the documentation (INSTALL file).  I may be the only person in the world who does everything backwards, but my first attempt at regression tests failed because I had already started the postmaster.  I know that's pretty stupid, but I had to scratch my head for a few minutes when it said initdb failed, and left me no clue as to why.  You might add a note in with the instructions for regression testing to shutdown the server before running the tests.  It does say, after all, that you can run them any time!

p.s. I noticed I am a build behind, but I would think that 8.1.5 would give similar results.
