"Last May"?  What version are you using?  I suppose it could be 6.3.2 at

Actually I'd recommend upgrading to 6.4.2; we cleaned up the perl5
module's install process in 6.4 so that you can build it either with
Postgres ("--with-perl") or afterwards.  I've forgotten exactly what
the problems were before, but one or the other method didn't work
quite right...

The 6.4.2 backend is also noticeably more stable than 6.3.2, at least
in my experience.
