Bug Description

Evergreen master (maybe 2.6)

For consideration, now that Ubuntu 14.04 has been released, we need to get Evergreen working with the latest LTS server edition from Ubuntu. We definitely should support it in master for, but we may wish to see this backported to the recently released 2.6 series of Evergreen.

This bug is started to begin work on tracking the progress of this work.

The only Makefile change I had to do between Precise and Trusty was to specify 9.3 postgres packages, but I did have to add /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dbd/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu to $DBI_LIBS in

My latest changes to;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/csharp/ubuntu-14-04-makefile are ready for testing. I recommend cherry picking the top commits from that branch onto a current master branch - otherwise DB creation will fail because there's not a 9.3 version of the fts-config sql file in that branch.

Adding pullrequest tag so we hopefully get this into 2.7-alpha!
