Due using Postgres, I've had experience on both Drupal and 
Serendipity, both installed mostly from ports and seem to be updated 
pretty regularly - although Serendipity can "self repair" - i.e. load 
updates for plugins and itself automatically. Both have functioned 
well enough, although with Drupal if you need more exotic array of 
plugins, they have to be installed manually as ports seem to miss 

In addition, some of the Drupal plugins need a bit of tweaking 
(getting rid of mysqlisms) if used under Postgres, although the main 
application works good enough.
