NetBSD server04.acrecott.local 4.0.1 NetBSD 4.0.1 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Oct  7

postgresql command 

createlang -U pgsql plpythonu template1

fails with the message
"createlang: language installation failed: server closed the connection 

Although I haven't run the kernel degugger, this seems to be a re-run of the 
problem with pkgsrc supposedly fixed in problem report #28729 and discussed at 
length in the threads 'Re Threading problems' and 'pthread + pkgsrc proposal' 
in tech-pkg archives. Somewhat confirmed by my workaround listed below.

This also fails on NetBSD 3.1.
plperl fails with the same message on both platforms.

Install packages postgresql8x-server and postgresql8x-plpython from pkgsrc 
current, start the server and run

createlang -U pgsql plpythonu template1

If the server is built with lines 34-36 of 
pkgsrc/databases/postgresql8x-server/Makefile commented out then plpythonu can 
be installed.

Lines are:

.if ${OPSYS} == "NetBSD"
As far as I can make out this was added to fix a problem in 2.x which resulted 
in going to 100% cpu under certain circumstances.
