How do I install plpython on MacOs X 10.5?

I have just installed PostgreSQL 8.3.4 on Mac OS X 10.5 (using ports), but I cannot figure out how to enable PL/Python. When I run the CREATE LANGUAGE plpythonu I get the following errors:

ERROR:  could not access file "$libdir/plpython": No such file or directory
psql:<stdin>:18: ERROR:  could not access file "$libdir/plpython": No such file or directory

How can I fix it? Ideally I would prefer to avoid compiling Postgres without port or something like that.

Thia the output of running pg_config:

BINDIR = /opt/local/lib/postgresql83/bin
INCLUDEDIR = /opt/local/include/postgresql83
PKGINCLUDEDIR = /opt/local/include/postgresql83

LIBS = -lpgport -lxslt -lxml2 -lssl -lcrypto -lz -lreadline -lm 
VERSION = PostgreSQL 8.3.4

(I've just switched from Linux to Mac a couple of days ago... In Ubuntu stuff like that used to just work, so I am pretty lost.)

Answer 1

Silly me:

[lib/postgresql83] > variants postgresql83
 postgresql83 has the variants:
    python: add support for python
    krb5: add support for Kerberos 5 authentication
    perl: add Perl support

(I'd had universal.)

This means that you have to install the right variant of PostgreSQL to make your python functions fly.

$ sudo port install postgresql83 +python postgresql-server +python
