Yes, this is perfectly legal with the PostgreSQL license. You could even charge
for the source code, without having done any modifications. If you do
modifications you can charge for the end product without releasing source code.
That is the big difference between BSD style licenses such as the PostgreSQL
license and GPL licenses such as the one for Linux. In both cases you
are allowed to charge for your product, but with the latter license you would
have to make the source code available for anybody you distribute your
product to. This is not a requirement with BSD style licenses.
