    ascii_and_mic.so does not exist--PostgreSQL Compilation Erro


    I decided to build a new postgresql. I
    downloaded v7.3.2 today and am trying to install it on RedHat 9.0

    It seemed to build okay. I gave it the following configure options:

    ./configure \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --enable-recode \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib/pgsql \
    --mandir=/usr/share/man
    --enable-syslog \
    --disable-shared \
    --with-pam \
    --with-openssl \


    Then ran 'make' which gave me:

    All of PostgreSQL successfully made. Ready to install.

    So, I ran 'make install'. It stopped at:

    ..
    make[3]: Entering directory
    `/root/postgresql-7.3.2/src/backend/utils/mb/conversion_procs/ascii_and_mic'
    /bin/sh ../../../../../../config/install-sh -c -m 755
    /opt/pgm/pgsql/lib/ascii_and_mic.so
    install: /opt/pgm/pgsql/lib/ascii_and_mic.so does not exist
    make[3]: *** [install] Error 1
    ..

    I already had installed the following:

    glibc-devel
    readline-devel
    openssl-devel

    Yet, things doesn't work alright for me.

    I searched google for the error but it didn't turn up anything. Any
    thoughts?

    You will need all these installed(i think you have some of them):
    perl
    glibc-devel
    readline-devel
    openssl-devel
    pam-devel

    after doing the make install, run:
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate ascii_and_mic.so
    to check if it has been installed somewhere else.., (and to check that the libary was actually created during the make process)


    You could also try a later version of postgres if that is an option..

    I verified all packages you above mentioned and it's already installed on my system. I can't figure out the problem I had this package installed previously and just wanting to install to another machine.

    Any idea?
