Thanks for the help, but I'm having an issue with the conflicts in
versions. If I try your suggestion of 'portupgrade -o
databases/postgresql7 postgresql', it errors out with conflict with the
postgresql-client-7.3.4_1. And if I try the portupgrade of the client
first, it errors with a conflict with the server. So, I did a pkg_delete
of the client and now get the following error when trying to 'make
install' the client after getting the server installed.

===>  postgresql-client-7.4.2 conflicts with installed package(s):
      They install files into the same place.
      Please remove them first with pkg_delete(1).
*** Error code 1
