It is great to confirm that the latest version of Postgres cleanly builds on the latest Ubuntu without any errors or warnings.   Hmmm, I wonder now if GGC 5 makes anything measurably run faster??


$ sudo apt-get install build-essential  libreadline-dev  zlib1g-dev flex bison libxml2-dev libxslt-dev libssl-dev

With this complete, you can then do an industrial strength build of PostgreSQL as per below:


<p>$ tar -xvf postgresql-9.6.x.tar.bz2</p>

<p>$ cd postgresql-9.6.x</p>

<p>$ ./configure --with-libxml --with-libxslt --with-openssl</p>

<p>$ make</p>
