databases/pglessog, databases/pg_rman problems after the last update

Dear all,

I noticed this when building indexes.  Seems that databases/pglesslog
and databases/pg_rman are unhappy as a consequence of the last update, but only if postgresql (other than version 8.3)
is already installed:

Initially -- with postgresql-client-9.0.7_1 installed:

databases/pglesslog:# make -V PGSQL_VER

databases/pglesslog:# make -V BUILD_DEPENDS

PGSQL_VER ends up empty, causing the BUILD_DEPENDS to refer to a
non-existent 'postgresql-server' port.

Simply deleting the postgresql client ...

databases/pglesslog:# pkg delete -x postgresql
The following packages will be deinstalled:

The deinstallation will save 8 MB

Proceed with deinstalling packages [y/N]: y
Deinstalling postgresql-client-9.0.7_1... done

... fixes the INDEX:

databases/pglesslog:# make -V PGSQL_VER
databases/pglesslog:# make -V BUILD_DEPENDS

Since this is dependent on postgresql !8.3 already being installed I
guess it wouldn't have shown up in testing.  It seems that these are the
only two ports affected.
