One of my colleagues has just pointed out that there's some very old
(i.e. 2008) code in the installer that creates a symlink from
/usr/lib/libpq.5.dylib to the installed copy. This was safe of course
(though not the best idea I ever had), prior to Lion.

You should be able to put that back how it was by simply replacing the
symlink with one pointing to /usr/lib/libpq.5.3.dylib.

Apologies for the misinformation. We'll get that bug fixed ASAP.
