Default pg_config is missing - bug?

I have recently installed postgres8.2 and am unable to find the
pg_config binary.


I need this so that I can install ruby gems.

I have also been unable to find this file using dpkg -S so it seems
that there is no package which carries this file.


Bug on the maintainers part or an oversight on my part?

"apt-file search pg_config" finds this:

libpq-dev: usr/lib/postgresql/8.2/bin/pg_config

Looks like it has been shifted to libpq-dev.

dpkg -S can show contents only of installed packages. Try apt-file
instead. I think you need libpq-dev, but I'm not familiar with postgres
or what you are trying to do. BTW, are you trying to install the
package? Because the package itself has to pull in all necessary stuff,
otherwise it's a bug.

Great. I only need pg_config so I can install a ruby gem. I don't
know the issue of what's a bug or what is not -- but this is silly to
have so many things to install and especially to include a
distributed binary only in a dev package. ugh!
