The libpq exports.txt has spaces, not tabs, as separators.  In fact, if
you see the .def files you notice that the generated files for ecpg are
all wrong.

Simplest is to change tabs to spaces ... However I'm thinking that maybe
it's better to change the sed line to consider both spaces and tabs in
the regex.
