Regarding the restrictions for backend libs, consider the attached patch. It just filters out anything readline related. Threading LIBS are not in the LIBS variable at all. Regarding the other, this is the kind of thing the buildfarm would be good for. Would it be possible to arrange for each buildfarm machine to execute the following after successful completion and capture the output? It only needs to be run once. cd $SOURCEDIR/src/backend rm postgres make LIBS=-lm postgres It'll produce a lot of output but for example on my linux machine the only undefined symbols are from -ldl and -lcrypt. This would provide a solid base on which to make improvements. Thanks in advance, -- Martijn van Oosterhout <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://svana.org/kleptog/ > Patent. n.
