Thank you for your reply, however, I believe I have found the problem.
The --with-pgsql option being enabled seems to require that a pgsql
server be running on the system, which in the case of this server it was
not. Perhaps a more useful error message, such as unable to connect to
pgsql database, or something similar would be helpful in the future.
