>>Hello List,
>>I got a question about the PostGIS regression tests.
>>Using MinGW and Msys, I have compiled PostGreSQL 8.1.3, Geos 2.2.1, Proj

>>As my system is a french one, "initdb" has built the database cluster

>>- stop the postmaster
>>- modify the "postgresql.conf" file to set :
>># These settings are initialized by initdb -- they might be changed
>>lc_messages = 'C'#'French_France.1252'                  # locale for
>>system error message strings
>>lc_monetary = 'C'#'French_France.1252'                  # locale for
>>monetary formatting
>>lc_numeric = 'C'#'French_France.1252'                   # locale for
>>number formatting
>>lc_time = 'C'#'French_France.1252'                      # locale for
>>time formatting
>>- restart the postmaster
>>- go to the repertory of the PostGIS sources which is
>>"/home/dantea/sources/PostGIS/postgis-1.1.2/" (that is to say
>>"C:\msys\1.0\home\dantea\sources\PostGIS\postgis-1.1.2"), directory
>>where PostGIS was compiled
>>- launch the "make test" command.
>>Have you already encounter this problem of "path" in the lwpostgis.sql
>>file ?
>>Why do this file, stored in the "regress" directory, contain this path ?
>>Have you already passed the regression tests ?
>>Thank you for your help.
