[postgis-users] WKT raster installation on mac

The 'libpq' that it's not finding is lib/libpq.dylib, not include/libpq (which is a folder).  So, the libdir option (or lack of) should be OK.

I find that sometimes other unrelated things affect configure detection.  In the wktraster source folder you should have a config.log, look there for more details on why it failed to find libpq.

(No problems here configuring wktraster on OS X with my own Postgres and Postgis binaries.)

The path for libpq is "/Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/include" which is distinct from the other code libraries in "/Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/lib"  I'm copying the directory contents so you can clearly see what's included in each.

Theory of the Universe

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.  There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
