Hi Andreas,

Thanks for looking into this issue.

My ultimate goal is to remove the libpq-dev dependency completely. It is
not needed by slicer, but it gets included because of cmake's transitive
linking. I already removed a lot of those unnecessary dependencies, but
it takes some time because I have to recompile other packages as well.

I should mention that this bug is not that 'serious', because it only
effects a snapshot in experimental. I am working on it...
