It depends on which version of PostgreSQL you intend on using. I have
submitted changes the the development branch to have it compile out
of the box on several architectures under NetBSD (should be any
architecture, but I haven't tried it on all). If it is the last
release, you might have a couple of small things to do. They were
trivial as I remember. Like they assumed you were on a i486 class
machine and so put -m486 in the CFLAGS. If you are on a 486 or
better, that wouldn't be a problem.
