Can only specify static-libpq in setup.cfg

Reported by Matthew Ryan | March 9th, 2011 @ 04:57 PM

This is extant in the current 2.4 release.

The current only allows setting the static-libpq option
via the setup.cfg, and doesn't accept it on the commandline.
Instead, you get the following error:
error: error in command line: command 'psycopg_build_ext' has no such option 'static_libpq'

I've attached a minimal patch which makes it work, tested on RHEL-5 and OSX.

    Thanks, I think there is no problem in merging the patch.

    I'm merging the patch. However for me (on ubuntu) the compiled library doesn't work:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
      File "/home/piro/dev/psycopg2/build/lib.2.6/psycopg2/", line 71, in <module>
        from psycopg2._psycopg import BINARY, NUMBER, STRING, DATETIME, ROWID
    ImportError: /home/piro/dev/psycopg2/build/lib.2.6/psycopg2/ undefined symbol: GSS_C_NT_HOSTBASED_SERVICE
    make: *** [check] Error 1

    I suspect what is missing is linking against the crypto libraries. The problem is not in the patch anyway: you get the same setting static_libpq in setup.cfg. So I'll leave people who know what to do (which is not me) solving the problem specifying --libraries too.
