Has anyone ported (or tried to) PosgreSQL v7.x to OS X?
Tim Perdue has written a very interesting comparison of PostgreSQL 7.1 (CVS pre-beta) versus MySQL 3.23.26 beta, using production data from SourceForge, at http;//www.phpbuilder.com/columns/tim20001112.php3
I tried to port/compile Postgres 7 (7.02 I think) on OS X in mid September. No luck. I first go stuck with Configure erros... Fixed those.. and then ran into Make errors. It's been a while - I can't remember the details. I'd really like to get Postgres installed though. MySQL seems to lack a lot of cool features (like rollback).
I talked to a couple people who once tried to port Postgres to a Next Cube... nothing usefull came of that.
