Ticket #1713 (closed defect: wontfix)
postgis extension cannot be made without raster
|Reported by:||mwtoews||Owned by:||pramsey|
When building the postgres extensions (for PostgreSQL 9.1+) with ./configure --without-raster, the postgis extension build fails.
There are many references to "raster" and "rtpostgis" in extensions/postgis/Makefile.in, so this is an expected consequence.
Interestingly, if --with-topology is configured, the topology extension can be successfully built and installed in /usr/share/postgresql/9.1/extension/. However, from psql:
postgres=# CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology; ERROR: required extension "postgis" is not installed
There should really be a separate postgis_raster extension built, if configured with raster support. (I'm not sure if it is too late for 2.0.0, but I'll assume it is.)
