If you’ve tried to install the postgres ruby gem like so:
sudo gem install postgres — –with-pgsql-include-dir=/usr/local/pgsql/include –with-pgsql-lib-dir=/usr/local/pgsql/lib
…and you get the error:
checking for PQsetdbLogin() in -lpq… no
Could not find PostgreSQL libraries: Makefile not created
* extconf.rb failed *
…then it’s possible you didn’t compile postgres with the –with-openssl option. Doing so made everything work perfectly.
