How did you apply my patch?
cd /usr/pkgsrc
patch < pkgsrc-databases-postgresql80.diff
it went fine. But then I did according to your advice to go to postgresql80-server and build it.

This is different, because you should see lines like:



checking which template to use... dragonfly
pkgsrc wanted to compile postgresql80-client first (before server) which caused this error.

I already patched it before I asked for help:
I assume that Tomaz didn't apply the patch or I accidently missed 
something in my patch as linked from above URL.
I took pkgsrc.tar.gz as of Aug 13 again and did not update it via cvs and reapplied your patch. I went into 
postgresql80-client and bmake there. So far it looks fine, configure went OK and it is compiling right now.
