I was thinking I might make it depend on my custom versions (so
libpq4-hw >= 8.0.4), it would make my packages installable and tie
everything built from the one source package into each other - which
probably isn't a bad idea considering they will all be compiled with the
same options and packages from outside the build might try calling
features that are just not there.
