I have been trying to compile postgresql-7.0.3 on a uVax II running NetBSD
1.5, after some problems i am almost there, now i only get these errors
during the final compile:

>gcc -I../include -I../backend -O2 -pipe -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissin
g-declarations -o postgres access/SUBSYS.o bootstrap/SUBSYS.o
>catalog/SUBSYS.o commands/SUBSYS.o executor/SUBSYS.o lib/SUBSYS.o

I have change something in /src/include/storage/s_lock.h (because else i
would get another error, saying that slock_t was already defined in os.h):

Can anybody help me and explain to me how to fix this?

Are there people here that have any postgresql version running on there vax?
which version do you use?

thank you,
