      Yep. For the record, you'll need Postgres packages installed before
      building the Postfix RPM because the build process needs to link to
      Postgres libraries. This is the bit from the RPM specfile that relates
      to Postgres:

      %if %{with_pgsql}
      Requires: postgresql-libs
      BuildRequires: postgresql-devel
