Hello seanc,

  I've tried to install this port (I have the latest ports
  collections, "cvsup"ed from the freebsd site.
  My FreeBSD is:
  I have this error message:

gmake[4]: Entering directory `/usr/ports/databases/postgresql-devel/work/postgresql-7.4.b5.2003.10.23/src/pl/plpgsql/src'

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/postgresql-devel.

        ! databases/postgresql-devel    (unknown build error)

  I think this should be an error from the beta 5 and not from your
  poret. Is there any chance of getting an update of this port ?
  PostgreSQL 7.4 RC2 is out...

  Thanks for your attention and for the kindness of maintaing this
Best regards,
