OK, apparently there is another file that's required, libpq-fe.h.  That's part of the development RPM that I didn't have installed.  Someone might want to add that to the requirements.  Took me 2 hours to find that in the configure output because it kept scrolling past the top of the screen.  I just found it by chance.

Hey everyone,

I'm a new user as of this morning, and so far I love what I see.  The major feature I need to enable right now is Postgres.  It's installed into a non-standard location from RPM's, so I tried to enable the postgres plugin with configure like so:

./configure --enable-postgresql --with-libpq=/usr/pgsql-9.1/lib

However, it still says it can't enable it because it's missing dependencies.  Libpq is the only dependency listed on the website.    Can someone give me a tip on what I'm doing wrong?
