Current version of mentioned port has long-time problems and current developer is unresponsive. For example flow-export currently fails to import data correctly into PostgreSQL database unless explicitly patched.
Trying export any data to PostgreSQL database. Text fields would be quoted using '"' instead of '\'' as needed by PostgreSQL.
Project was forked long ago and exists now at http://code.google.com/p/flow-tools/. Proper decision would be to update current package or create another one (named like gflow-tools for example).
