plpgsql is a trusted language so it can't access the file system.
I'd do it with plpgperlu but then again, Perl is my favorite language.
// Totally off-the-cuff (i.e. untested) example code to get you started
CREATE FUNCTION check_file_size (character varying)
RETURNS integer AS $BODY$
my ( $filepath ) = @_;
return 0 unless defined $filepath;
return -s $filepath; # returns size in bytes
$BODY$ LANGUAGE plperlu;
