When I deinstall postgresql74-server and try install
postgresql81-server, I get this message:
===> postgresql-server-8.1.0 is marked as broken: the port wants
postgresql81-client but you have postgresql74-client installed.
So I guess the version numbers do have to match. At least according to ports.
