postgresql90: pg_config contains -arch flags

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: jyrkiwahlstedt
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.0.1
Keywords: Cc: Veence (Vincent), cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: postgresql90


postgresql90's pg_config program prints out -arch flags:

$ /opt/local/lib/postgresql90/bin/pg_config | grep -- -arch
CONFIGURE = '--prefix=/opt/local' '--disable-dependency-tracking' '--sysconfdir=/opt/local/etc/postgresql90' '--bindir=/opt/local/lib/postgresql90/bin' '--libdir=/opt/local/lib/postgresql90' '--includedir=/opt/local/include/postgresql90' '--datadir=/opt/local/share/postgresql90' '--mandir=/opt/local/share/man' '--with-includes=/opt/local/include' '--with-libraries=/opt/local/lib' '--with-openssl' '--with-bonjour' '--with-readline' '--with-zlib' '--with-libxml' '--with-libxslt' '--enable-thread-safety' '--enable-integer-datetimes' '--with-ossp-uuid' 'CC=ccache /usr/bin/gcc-4.2' 'CFLAGS=-pipe -O2 -DAC_APPLE_UNIVERSAL_BUILD -arch x86_64 -arch i386' 'LDFLAGS=-L/opt/local/lib -arch x86_64 -arch i386' 'CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/local/include -I/opt/local/include/ossp'
CFLAGS = -pipe -O2 -DAC_APPLE_UNIVERSAL_BUILD -arch x86_64 -arch i386 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wendif-labels -fno-strict-aliasing -fwrapv
LDFLAGS = -L/opt/local/lib -arch x86_64 -arch i386 -L/opt/local/lib -L/opt/local/lib -Wl,-dead_strip_dylibs

This needs to be fixed, for the reasons explained in PortfileRecipes. When postgresql90 is installed universal, it causes ports using pg_config to fail when they are not built universal, for example postgis as reported on the mailing list.

I only tested postgresql90 but I imagine other postgresql ports are also affected.

Resolution: fixed

Fixed in r92951. Extensions such as PostGIS do not use pg_ config directly, but include PGXS/src/, which overrides CFLAGS and LDFLAGS.

postgresql90 and postgresql91 have had the -arch flags removed from their Makefile.globals, but the other postgresql ports have not had the same change made, nor has pg_config been fixed in any version. Please don't close this ticket until all -arch flags have been removed from all affected existing versions of postgresql.

Ryan, The title of the bug was only mentioning PostGreSQL 9.0, wherefore my decision to close the bug. Now, you’re both right: neither the 8.x branch, nor pg_config have been altered. I am not aware of any PostGreSQL extension using pg_config to figure out its flags. Besides, is it worth fixing it in 8.x knowing that it will force a recompilation – recompilation that could be used to upgrade to 9.1, for example.

Yes, it is worth fixing this in all affected ports.
