#3199 closed defect (wontfix)

liblwgeom not being installed in postgresql bin (at least not under mingw)

Reported by: robe Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.2.0
Component: utils/loader-dumper Version: master
Keywords: Cc:


Okay now that I have a standalone libwgeom-2-2-0dev.dll that thank you very much my dumpers and loaders all depend on now (shp2pgsql, shp2pgsql, raster2pgsql, shp2pgsql-gui)

It seems while those get installed in postgresql/bin folder, the dependency liblwgeom-2-2-0dev.dll is not. Where does it get installed on linux systems? I can't find it in my mingw64 system folders either so not sure where it is going.

It gets installed in (puke) a system location, /usr/local/lib, or wherever you set —prefix to

Shouldn't it get installed wherever shp2pgsql and pgsql2shp and friends get installed?

I'm okay if its always been that way. Anyway will demote this.

No, having the library with the executable is a windows-specific quirk. Linux'es are going to want it somewhere the system linker can pick it up. Too bad we're not statically linked…. *a tear*

:( I miss my statics. Anyway I can live with passing a prefix so will mark this as wontfix.

pramsey, strk

Can you confirm setting —prefix does anything for you. I did find my liblwgeom…dll new friend in /usr/local/bin as you stated (puke)

However setting the —prefix, doesn't move it and (makes it not install in /usr/local/bin anymore) after I run make install. I just get this nice friendly message during configure which I think pramsey had put in eons ago.

  WARNING: You have set the --prefix to '/projects/postgresql/rel/pg9.4w64gcc48/bin'. But we mostly
  ignore the --prefix. For your info, using the values determined from
