Have you restarted whatever runs PHP? (Apache for mod_php, your fcgi master
if that's your kink, etc) If you haven't, then it'll still be linked in
memory to the older libpq and hence will still be using it (an lsof -n |grep
deleted will show it, too).

"Best", probably. "Worth the hassle", if it means backporting yet another
package, probably not.
