$ apt-file search bin/pg_config
libpq-dev: /usr/bin/pg_config
postgresql-server-dev-8.3: /usr/lib/postgresql/8.3/bin/pg_config

That is confusing actually.

However, the readme for DBD::Pg which cpan gives a convenient
interface has installation instructions which specifically list the

cpan[4]> readme DBD::Pg
...[lots of crap about downloading stuff]...


        build, test, and install Perl 5         (at least 5.6.1)
        build, test, and install the DBI module (at least 1.52)
        build, test, and install PostgreSQL     (at least 7.4)
        build, test, and install Test::Simple   (at least 0.47)

DBD::Pg needs to know where to find the libpq libraries: this is usually done
by checking the output of the pg_config executable. If pg_config is
not available,
then you may need to install the development package for PostgreSQL. To do this
on Debian and Ubuntu, use: apt-get install postgresql-dev; on RedHat
and CentOS,
use: yum install postgresql-devel. Note that the development libraries
are needed
even if you already have PostgreSQL up and running.
