Dear Kevin,

I was following your directions for Porting PostgreSQL to Windows 2000
 http://people.freebsd.org/~kevlo/postgres/portNT.html ) and wanted to let
you know where I had trouble in the process so that others can avoid making
the same mistake.

When I got to step 7, and tried to run './configure', I was told that
configure could not find install-sh or install.sh in the
/usr/src/postgresql-7.0.3/src directory. When I did an ls I could see it
there, so I could not figure out what the problem was. Then I looked at my

and sam is the computer name. I changed usernames in windows to
administrator and the problem went away. The reason that it could not find
install-sh was that there was a space in my username.

Now I'm further along in that same step, but I'm getting an error out of the

$ configure

Any ideas?

I'm getting closer :).
