Absolutely. This has been done. For example, GNU bison was derived
many years ago from Berkeley yacc.
You can go further and make a non-free MyPostgresql. Use Postgres
code in a completely proprietary project if you like. The X11 license
places far fewer restrictions on code than does the GPL. Works
derived from X11-licensed code do not have to be free.
