Hello list,

I am very sorry for reposting this question. I had no response and as I 
now saw this error on three different FreeBSD 5.4 (Release) boxes I 
think this could be a bug.

In earlier days where there was no postgis port, I already had some bad 
experience with $libdir, but this was another problem.

I upgraded postgresql 8.0.3 to 8.04 and postgis - I think, it was 1.0.2,
but I'm not sure, sorry (but surely 1.0.x!) - to 1.0.4_2. I tried to 
load the lwpostgis.sql to a new database and got the following error:

ERROR:  could not access file "$libdir/": No such file or

As "pg_config --pkglibdir" sais "/usr/local/lib/postgresql", I created a
symlink in /usr/local/lib/postgresql pointing to

That helped, but what happend to the port? Did I do something wrong? Can 
somebody reproduce this error?
