I know this has been brought up before:


But this is just plain wrong. I don't care that the FAQ (on the wiki) says we are doing it wrong for good reasons. When I (or anyone else) pulls postgresql-$version-dev, I want the libpq for my version. I do not want 9.3.

Yes, it "should" (because of protocol compatibility) work but it doesn't always (as stated in that email and in a similar problem we just ran into).

There can be unintended circumstances on machines when you mix and match like that. Can we please do some proper packaging on this?
