Well CPAN is trying to compile DBD::Pg from source. You don't even need a
complete Postgres install for that, just the development libraries. You don't
explain what operating system you're using but for example most Linux
distributions have a separate package for the development libraries.
Alternatively if your operating system has it you could install a precompiled
DBD::Pg packages instead of compiling from source. On Debian it's called
libdbd-pg-perl for example.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's PostGIS support!
