It's especially odd that they've chosen to support the -h option, but not the
-G option -- I'm not to what purpose one could put the generated header file.
Perhaps the Apple folks could comment?

Anyone know why -G flag is not supported in the Dtrace port in Leopard? This makes the dtrace cmd in Leopard incompatible with that on Solaris, and it's already causing problem with PostgreSQL.

Bug reference: 3699
Logged by: Lee Packham
Email address: lpackham at gmail.com
PostgreSQL version: 8.2.5
Operating system: OSX Leopard
Description: Fails to compile DTrace Support
I have built a patch to enable a working DTrace on OSX with Postgres 8.2.5.
Basically the problem is that the dtrace command on OSX doesn't have the -G
parameter - so you have to use the newer -h method to produce a header file.
