Well, I'm now compiling the port databases/pgadmin3 on my private home
box, most recent FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT/amd64 (FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT #3
r241332M: Sun Oct  7 22:31:07 CEST 2012). I have installed py27-sphinx
already. The compilation DOES NOT FAIL with the error reported.

I recompiled on one of the servers (9.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD
9.1-PRERELEASE #0 r241304: Sat Oct  6 23:49:20 CEST 2012), and it fails
also there.

Precondition: All systems do have databases/postgresql92-server/client!

I suspekt that, as Boris stated earlier in this thread, that I have
remnants of a patch I applied besides the regular ones and that this
patch is messing up at some places. It can not be the environment of
/usr/ports, since I deleted and restored it completely via SVN after

The question is where to look ...
