After upgrading my system to -current (on a new drive so no baggage left
from the old system) I ran into a problem with PostgreSQL libraries.
For some reason we put the PostgreSQL libraries under ${LOCALBASE}/pgsql
lib directory instead of the ${LOCALBASE} one.  This causes problems
with PyGreSQL (and perhaps other stuff I haven't tried) which uses the
libraries dynamically.  At run time it fails to find this because the
loader doesn't look there.  I can fix this in PyGreSQL I suppose by
having the package compile in the location but wouldn't it be better
to put the PostgreSQL libraries in LOCALBASE with the rest of them so
that other programs of this nature don't have to repeat this?
