Does this mean that each package will have to list the space it requires in 
every directory and the packaging software will figure out if each of those 
directories is on a separate partition?

I have seen a user that had separate /var, /usr/lib, and /home partitions.  
Please figure out how much space to report for postgres and how it will be 

I think figuring out how much space is required for the installation may be more difficult than just doing 'df' on each partition and "sorting it all out."
