[postgis-users] make generates incorrect PERL variable value on v1.5.2 from Bill Teluk March 9, 2011

There was a bug reported in the mailing list: [postgis-users] make generates incorrect PERL variable value on v1.5.2

This was a bug where the postgis 1.5.2 build failed on postgres 9.0.4 due to $(PERL) being replaced with a non existant version of active perl when building postgis_upgrade_15_minor.sql

I finally resorted to running strace on make and I have identified the problem as bogus paths in pgxs, specfically the file listed below: /opt/postgres/9.0/lib/postgresql/pgxs/src/makefiles/../../src/

This file contains numerous hard coded paths to active state products and breaks the 1.5.4 postgis build.

I don't feel like there's much we can do for builds with bogarted PGXS settings. We depend on a sane PGXS.

I understand. I just created this ticket to provide some kind of documentation to keep others from thinking they were going mad.

Thanks. I have the same issue too on windows building under old mingw 3.45 and have to resort to hacking the makefile scripts (as I have documented here)

With this hack:

sed 's,$(PERL),perl,g' <postgis/Makefile >postgis/Makefile2
mv postgis/Makefile2 postgis/Makefile

I'll call this a documentation enhancement and put it in under build install when I have the next chance as I presume it's not just a mingw issue.

This should be actually fixed in trunk, could you check ?
