createlang plpgsql yourdb should fix it.

I'm trying to install postgis 1.0.4 with postgresql 8.0.4.

In addition, I have installed proj 4.4.9 and geos 2.1.4.


If I leave the postgis Makefile.config alone everything works fine.


However, if I edit Makefile.config to say:





then I get shared library errors when I attempt to run


$psql -f lwpostgis.sql -d yourdatabase



psql:lwpostgis.sql:35: NOTICE:  type "histogram2d" is not yet defined

DETAIL:  Creating a shell type definition.

psql:lwpostgis.sql:35: ERROR:  could not load library
"/usr/local/pgsql/lib/liblwgeom.so.1.0": libgeos.so.2: cannot open
object file: No such file or directory


The shared library does in fact exist in that location.


Any help is appreciated!
