It successfully completes the build.  I don't know if the warnings are 
harmless or not.  I would have thought the 9.2 fix would have been 
backported to something as recent as version 9.1.x though especially 
since 9.1 is the default version for pgsql in pkgsrc.  If everyone is 
sure that these warnings are harmless, I suppose its okay to live with them.
