postgresql82-server compile error on Apple Leopard with Macports 1.5

I wasn’t able to compile postgresql82-server on my machine, it’s unable to compile php5 with postgresql-client support as well. Think there might be some bugs on it, here is some quick short cut fix, to enable php5 + Postgresql82 compile on your Apple.

First of all, make clean on your postgresql82 port;

sudo port -vd clean portgresql82

After that, make some changes on config file;

export EDITOR=vim
sudo port edit postgresql82

remove the line –with-bonjour

After that change to postgresql working directory and run make command


cd /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_databases_postgresql82/work/postgresql-8.2.5/
make

Now, it’s ready to compile and install

sudo port -vd install postgresql82-server

Done with postgresql, now with php5;

sudo port -dv install php5 +mysql5 +pear +postgresql +apache

MacPorts is fun.

* thanks spoonfork for putting up the solutions for me, wasn’t aware of it. Thanks Tun!
