[postgis-users] doesn't see postgresql

After you have a database created:

CREATE DATABASE foo;  -- options, etc. not shown

>From a command line run:

createlang plpgsql foo

If createlang is not in your path you will need to refer to it expicitly with path included; it is in the same directory as psql and the other postgres executables.

Then try to create postGIS, which needs to use the plpsql language in its functions.

Hi Steffen,
 to install postgis-1.1.1, from a postgis-1.1.1 directory

#  .configure

I get about the first 30 checks for things needed for postgis successfully

checking for pg_config... no
configure: error: PostgreSQL is required by PostGIS
