It's a great story.  Is there a sequel (SQL :)?

All you actually need is the library and include files.  Copy them over
from moe.  If you followed the default install they should be in
/usr/local/pgsql/lib and /usr/local/pgsql/include.  Installing shared
libraries is a little different for each platform, but the fact that you
got these libraries to work on moe is generally a good sign.

If you have the libraries properly installed you should be able to
simply copy the relevant parts of your Perl installation over as well. 
A couple of tarballs should be all you need.

Heck, if you are really ambitious it shouldn't be _too_ hard to roll
your own RPM or deb file (assuming of course you are using Linux or a
platform that uses RPM or deb files).
