Pong.  Could you please have another look into your script?  It's
assuming that the whole process of downloading, copying and moving will
take place inside of the existing postgresql directory on sourceware.

This won't be the case because the directory would be in a floating
state for quite some time, given the number of files and their size.
Rather, rephrase it so that the download and creation is done in
another dir and then the stuff is just copied over locally with
cpio or so.

I see a few glitches:

This just moves the file and renames it, but the content stays the
same, this way unpacking files into a directory postgresql-7.4.5-1,
while the file is called libpq3-7.4.5-1-...  That's not quite
correct.  The file should be repacked so that the sources get
unpacked into a libpq3-7.4.5-1 directory.

Here you're downloading libpq4-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2 and
postgresql-client-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2, but where are the sources?  Assuming
they are in postgresql-8.0.7-1-src.tar.bz2, shouldn't the same rename
and move into libpq4 take place as you did for 7.4.5?  This would also
require to rename the files in the source archive, of course.

There are also 8.0.4-1, 8.1.0-1 and 8.1.3-1 on sourceware.  These are
obsolete now, right?

Actually, I'd even like it more if the script would download a complete
new postgresql directory, which I could simply replace the old one with.
