RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pg_config (redhat section 1)

PG_CONFIG(1)			  PostgreSQL Client Applications		     PG_CONFIG(1)

NAME
       pg_config - retrieve information about the installed version of PostgreSQL

SYNOPSIS
       pg_config  {  --bindir  |  --includedir	|  --includedir-server | --libdir | --pkglibdir |
       --configure | --version }...

DESCRIPTION
       The pg_config utility prints configuration parameters of the currently  installed  version
       of  PostgreSQL.	It is intended, for example, to be used by software packages that want to
       interface to PostgreSQL to facilitate finding the required header files and libraries.

OPTIONS
       To use pg_config, supply one or more of the following options:

       --bindir
	      Print the location of user executables. Use this, for example,  to  find	the  psql
	      program. This is normally also the location where the pg_config program resides.

       --includedir
	      Print the location of C header files of the client interfaces.

       --includedir-server
	      Print the location of C header files for server programming.

       --libdir
	      Print the location of object code libraries.

       --pkglibdir
	      Print  the  location  of	dynamically  loadable  modules, or where the server would
	      search for them. (Other architecture-dependent data files may also be installed  in
	      this directory.)

       --configure
	      Print  the options that were given to the configure script when PostgreSQL was con-
	      figured for building.  This can be used to reproduce the	identical  configuration,
	      or  to  find  out  with what options a binary package was built. (Note however that
	      binary packages often contain vendor-specific custom patches.)

       --version
	      Print the version of PostgreSQL and exit.

       If more than one option (except for --version) is given, the  information  is  printed  in
       that order, one item per line.

NOTES
       The  option  --includedir-server  is  new in PostgreSQL 7.2. In prior releases, the server
       include files were installed in the same location as the client headers,  which	could  be
       queried	with  the  --includedir.  To  make  your package handle both cases, try the newer
       option first and test the exit status to see whether it succeeded.

       In releases prior to PostgreSQL 7.1, before the pg_config came to be, a method for finding
       the equivalent configuration information did not exist.

HISTORY
       The pg_config utility first appeared in PostgreSQL 7.1.
