Description of problem:
Red Hat Linux ships with both Kerberos v5 and OpenSSL but PostgreSQL is not
compiled with either Kerberos or SSL support. This implies that users
cannot secure their Postgres connections using the prebuilt packages.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. read the fine manual
Actual Results: connections are insecure, and configuring for ssl/kerberos
does not work
Expected Results: Since RHL ships with krb5 and openssl, it should be
expected that other packages that already have support for krb5 and openssl
would be compiled with that support. Postgres does have krb5 and openssl
support, but is not compiled with it.
./configure --with-krb5=/usr --with-openssl=/usr
Newer releases of PostgreSQL, like postgresql-7.1.2-6, are compiled with ssl
Yes, the rawhide version (7.1.2-6) is compiled with SSL support, but
unfortunately it is STILL not compiled with Kerberos v5 support. Could you
please also ./configure --with-krb5?
Added in postgresql-7.1.2-7
