Ignore the first two - what it really means is that it has a path to
look in for each of those items. I'll look to improving those messages.

Yeah, it looks like it's finding libpq (which is not always a surpsie if
it's somewhere in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but failing to find the headers which
it needs the precise location of. You can override the header path with
--with-pgsql-include=/path/to/dir. It expects to find libpq-fe.h (and
any dependencies) in the directory you specify.
I need to refactor the pgsql detection code to try to use pg_config (as
we already do for wx), but that's not going to happen for 1.4.
