Hi all,
I have a Solaris 10 build of PostGIS, but so far I've had to disable
unicode support (--without-unicode).
The issue seems pretty close to the one described in this mapserver
ticket, http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/1017
That is, my build seems to be finding the Sun library or headers, which
(according to the Mapserver ticket) do not implement UTF-8.
It should (I think) be using the GNU libiconv is in /usr/local/, which
does implement UTF-8. I have "iconv.h" in /usr/include/
and /usr/local/include/. That or some other sort of confusion between
the two.
So far I haven't been able to find a configure option that will allow me
to specifiy use of the correct iconv. Has anyone
else encountered this and/or have any ideas on how it could be resolved?
Other than that, my non-unicode version seems to be working OK.
