Added to Lintian, along with the postgressql misspelling.

BTW, the way that the Lintian spell-checking works is that it looks for
errors rather than looking for each word in a dictionary.  It has a table
of pairs of error and correct word.  So if you notice any common
misspelled words that Lintian doesn't catch, please let debian-lint-maint
know and we'll add them to the table.  That's how the table was built in
the first place, I believe.
