IMHO it all depends on how we present those links.

If we call the page "these guys endorse PostgreSQL" of course we'd
get cease&desist letters; since that's simply false.


If we call the page "links mentioning PostgreSQL on other corporate
sites" it's hard for me to imagine any complaints from even the
most uptight marketing department.  At that point all it does is
drive traffic and help their google page-rank score.
