I don't think so.

The primary database interface is DBI and as far as I can see there's
only one DBI PostgreSQL driver: http://search.cpan.org/dist/DBD-Pg/

The only non-DBI interfaces I could find (by skimming the 384 results
for postgresql on search.cpan.org) were:
Postgres: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Postgres/    last updated in 1998.
Pg:       http://search.cpan.org/dist/pgsql_perl5/ last updated in 2000.

Tim.
