for a server like this I don't think anybody cares at all for the
prepackaged postgresql. People are likely to use such a box for
development/testing of new patches and development stuff. so what they
need is a proper toolchain and solid packages. Debian derived
distributions are quite good at that usually (debian etch ships with gcc
3.3,gcc 3.4 and gcc 4.1 for example) and I expect people to simply get
their accounts and do all their work in their home-directories
anyway(which sounds like the normal way to develop on unix like OSes to me).
