I believe we found out recently that Perl 5.005-something changed its PM
interfaces, thereby breaking the Postgres perl5 module at both source
and binary levels. If you revert to Perl 5.004-anything it should work.
It would be nice to find a Perl guru who knows how to fix the perl5
module for the new Perl *without* breaking backwards compatibility for
older Perls (source-level compatibility that is, I suppose binary
compatibility is hopeless).
