DBD::Pg links against libpq, so to build it you need that library
and header files like libpq-fe.h; as you've discovered, the module
uses pg_config to learn about where things are installed.  At runtime
you'll probably need at least the shared library.  You
shouldn't need to have a server running or even installed, but
you'll need at least some kind of client installation.
