But that shouldn't really matter, should it? If I can run a different
client remotely I should also be able to run another client locally,
right? Or what is the philosophy behind this setup?
That locally server and client version should match, in order to
guarantee 100% compatibility (iow: admins should never be locked out
in case of an unforseen interface breakage?). Or is it just a small
bug in the Makefile?
Anyway, running postgres8 now, thanks to the WANT_PGSQL_VER directive.
