Re: postgresql91 build with libxml

Thanks All,
  The buildlink include solved it just fine.

I run a database backed website with apache/postgres/NetBSD and have
observed the development of XML support with an eye to XML/XSL
migration at some point.  It's getting fairly mature by now and we're
going to set up a test server.
I'm neutral as to the default build configuration for Postgres, but
thankful for the tips provided here.  It is looking like Postgres is
going to be a good XML/XSL backend though.

You can learn more here:

Again, thanks
