Building postgres requires bmake. Should it be a seperate package?
Hi again folks,
Postgres requires bmake ( Berkeley make ) to understand its Makefiles.
It comes with the source to bmake and a way of bootstaping from a
standard makefile. I can do one of three things;
In the source package
1) have it build bmake first, install it in the source tree.
2) have it build bmake first, install bmake in /usr/bin, and the bmake
library files in /usr/lib/mk/
3) package bmake separately . However I can't seem to find it separated
I think that 2) is the preferred approach because some of the prog's
that are contributed with postgres want bmake. It has the drawback of
installing a pice of software that is logically distinct from the
Any preferences out there?
