This is fixed in the current docs:

#$ grep PQsetnonblocking *.sgml
libpq.sgml:   <function>PQsetnonblocking</function> had been called.
libpq.sgml:address that issue, the function
<function>PQsetnonblocking</function>
libpq.sgml:Old applications can neglect to use
<function>PQsetnonblocking</function>
libpq.sgml:<function>PQsetnonblocking</function> to achieve a completely
non-blocking
libpq.sgml:    <function>PQsetnonblocking</function> Sets the
nonblocking status of the
libpq.sgml:int PQsetnonblocking(PGconn *conn, int arg)
libpq.sgml:    <function>PQsetnonblocking</function> functionality in
the near future.
libpq.sgml:<function>PQsetnonblocking</function> have a need for this.
libpq.sgml:Non-blocking connections (that have used
<function>PQsetnonblocking</function>)
