Building perl mods pg:PG or DBD:PG on non-PostgreSQLable machines

 Building perl mods pg:PG or DBD:PG on non-PostgreSQLable machines

I recently asked about adding DBD:PG to Novell and got the reply that it should
be possible since novell supports DBI.

However, Since I cannot install / build PostgreSQL on a novell machine I do not
satisfy the requirments for building DMD:Pg.

How can I add either of the mentioned perl modules to a machine that does not
have the postgresql libraries?

I have the libraries built on a linux/x86 box. Can I just copy them to the
novell server( I 99.99999% sure the answer to this question is no)?

Thanks for your help!

PostgreSQL support I would appreciate it!

Nope.  You're either going to have to port the libraries to NetWare
(which might not be too hard) or write a "pure Perl" implementation of
DBD::Pg (one that speaks the backend protocol directly rather than
using the libraries).  The former is almost certainly less work.  I
know there was someone on -hackers working on a NetWare port; you
might want to search the archives for that list.
