The new PostgreSQL is about to be released.  There will be a new feature
that allows you to build PyGreSQL in the same build.  This is easier
than building one and then the other since PyGreSQL is also distributed
with PostgreSQL.  I was wondering if we should take advantage of that.
We could easily remove the PyGreSQL package (or replace it with a notice
of how to build it) and put some sort of flag in /etc/mk.conf to tell
the PostgreSQL package to build PyGreSQL at the same time.

Heck, considering that it checks for Python first, perhaps we just have
to include it every time and have it build automatically if Python already
exists.  Would that be acceptable?

How about thinkgs like Perl?  The same thing may apply.
