New PostgreSQL Fink Packages

I just reworked all the PostgreSQL packages for Fink, I’m doing some testing and then I’ll release them to unstable. Here’s the commit message:

postgresql 7.3.3 -- LOTS of fixes
- Fixed postinstall to remove the old entries for "pgsql" (now that the
user is "postgres" instead).
- Totally reworked the packages to get rid of "postgresql73" (it should
safely upgrade over).  postgresql73-shlibs and postgresql73-dev (and
their SSL counterparts) still exist for compatibility and upgrade
reasons, but there's no longer 2 different "PostgreSQL database server"
entries for you to decide from.
- Perl and Python support has no been properly implemented to do packages
for all currently supported versions of each.
- Python modules were fixed to build properly as bundles again.  This still
needs testing from someone with more python-fu.
- The SSL packages were re-written by copying the non-SSL ones, so they
should be identical except for SSL dependencies and descriptions now.
All in all, it's just *much* cleaner.  Yay!  Now it's time for some deep
testing, then release to unstable.

If you’re feeling adventurous, please try them out!
