Yes; postgresql is in the `main' section of the distribution, which
means it is DFSG-compliant.  All `main' and `contrib' packages are
completely free of any payment for licences.

However, if you want more than 32 simultaneous users of postgresql, you
will have to recompile it; then you will have to recompile your kernel
to allow more shared memory and semaphores...  Release 6.5 of PostgreSQL	will 
change the 32 user limit.
