If you use -E option when doing issuing a "\di" command in psql it will 
show you the query that it performs to list the indexes.

For example:

mmcintyre(at)beta matrix $ psql -E -U clients marc_dev
Welcome to psql 7.4.7, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type:  \copyright for distribution terms
       \h for help with SQL commands
       \? for help on internal slash commands
       \g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
       \q to quit
