FWIW, I'm pretty sure that you can make connections to a postgresql 8.x 
database server using the 7.4 client just fine and you wouldn't need to run 
separate backends, but anyway:

Set the WANT_PGSQL_VER variable to the number suffix of the postgresql ports 
you want - /etc/make.conf is a good place for this:

For a value use 'XY' from the postgresqlXY-client|server ports, for instance

WANT_PGSQL_VER=73 will adjust dependencies to postgresql73-client|server


WANT_PGSQL_VER=80 will adjust dependencies to postgresql80-client|server

Note that this only works for ports - the binary packages available on the 
FreeBSD ftp mirrors are always built against the default dependencies.
