The overall trend is that community-maintained operating systems (e.g., 
Debian, FreeBSD, Gentoo) have a complete set of PostgreSQL add-ons packaged, 
whereas the commercial distributors of free operating systems tend to do more 
poorly, more so in the "enterprise" variants, which have an even more 
restricted set of packages.  Still, you can easily google for more add-on 
packages from third-party sites.

Really, the availability is not the problem, it's the organization on the 
provider side and the public impression created by it.
