Probably the Postgres client library (that'd be libpq) can be included
as part of the PHP distribution.  With that, according to the thread,
the Postgres support could be built in by default.  I can't find the PHP
license on their website though.

Better hurry.  Sterling Hughes is proposing to enable SQlite support by
default; that move could be bad for the lobbying of activating Pg
support.
