Well, to be honest, I think it's fair to say that the pgsql ports are 
in a little state of flux right now, and really need to be recoded for 
(at least) separate -client/-server (like mysql).  I intend to take a 
look at porting over the NetBSD pkgsrc setup (which has -libs, -client, 
-server, and a myriad of other components) which would provide 
considerably more flexibility than right now (imagine a set of machines 
where one or two need the full pgsql environment, and the others only 
need client support), but that may be some time away.
