I've had various duplicate man files and missed some other.

Pong. Could you please have another look into your script? It's
assuming that the whole process of downloading, copying and moving will
take place inside of the existing postgresql directory on sourceware.
This won't be the case because the directory would be in a floating
state for quite some time, given the number of files and their size.
Rather, rephrase it so that the download and creation is done in
another dir and then the stuff is just copied over locally with
cpio or so.
Please download it into some private dir and then copy it over.
I just reworked the $url/$url, put out the mv command and repackaged the
libpq3 and 8.0.7-1 src package.
I see a few glitches:
# external source for 7.4.5
mv ../postgresql-7.4.5-1-src.tar.bz2 ./libpq3-7.4.5-1-src.tar.bz2
This just moves the file and renames it, but the content stays the
same, this way unpacking files into a directory postgresql-7.4.5-1,
while the file is called libpq3-7.4.5-1-... That's not quite
correct. The file should be repacked so that the sources get
unpacked into a libpq3-7.4.5-1 directory.
No external sources will be unpacked into some libxxx-<ver>-<cygrelease>
dir. There's no seperate libpq3 upstream package and I will not
artificially create some.
libpq3 consists of one /usr/bin/pq.dll and is created as sideeffect of
This src package has now an additional cygport script for easier picking
apart the various packages afterwards.
Here you're downloading libpq4-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2 and
postgresql-client-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2, but where are the sources? Assuming
they are in postgresql-8.0.7-1-src.tar.bz2, shouldn't the same rename
and move into libpq4 take place as you did for 7.4.5? This would also
require to rename the files in the source archive, of course.
same as above.
the sources for postgresql-client-8.0.7-1 and libpq4-8.0.7-1 are defined
in the setup.hint, which points to the whole postgresql-8.0.7-1-src package.
unpacking them into some artifical postgresql-client or libpq4 dir is
not right. there's no such client or library src package.
the only problem would be to pick them apart.
this is done in the updated postgresql-8.0.7-1.sh build script.
(needed for the cygpq.dll only)
this is left out now. you have to do that manually.
There are also 8.0.4-1, 8.1.0-1 and 8.1.3-1 on sourceware. These are
obsolete now, right?
Actually, I'd even like it more if the script would download a complete
new postgresql directory, which I could simply replace the old one with.
I rather prefer if you download the new stuff, delete the obsolete stuff
and keep the rest. this keeps the old datestamps, we are talking about
11MB files, and my server performs very poor.
