AFAICT Peter's claim is false.  You can install plphp in the order of PHP, 
PostgreSQL,plPHP  which is the same for all of the other pl's.   

You don't need postgresql installed before php any more than you need it 
installed for perl (although you do need postgresql installed to compile some 
of the perl & php db interfaces, but that is all after the fact.)
