Interesting.  Asterisk says that "--with-postgres" takes an
argument which is the directory where PG is installed.  That's why I
made it "CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --with-postgres=${PREFIX}" in my attempt.

While technically my system is in production I only have a few users
who are willing to let me play with the system as long as it is mostly
up.  As a result I can put the latest version up.  Currently I am
running 11.17.1nb1.

I haven't actually seen that.  However, the system randomly stops
running with no core dump even with the -g option.  I am hoping to
create a developer version that I can install on a test box so that I
can run the unit tests.  Currently I monitor it every minute and restart
it if it is down.  It happens maybe once a week on average.  It used to
be worse before I set up an intrusion detection system and blocked
attacks on the server.  The attacks never succeeded but they used up a
lot of resources.
