That makes sense to me... but I've got a couple o questions about other 

I am using the following switches:
./configure \
--with-gdal=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config \
--with-includes=/sw/include \
--with-libs=/sw/lib --with \
--with-opengl-includes=/usr/X11R6/include \

but need to straighten out postgresql. I'm getting the following error 
when when I run ./congigure:

checking for location of PostgreSQL includes...
checking for libpq-fe.h... no
configure: error: *** Unable to locate PostgreSQL includes.

A 'find' does not come up with libpq-fe.h. I built postgresql with fink 
using the  /10.3/unstable tree. However, I'm having a bogger of a time 
figuring out where it put the postgresql includes...
