Overall, I'm really getting the feeling that this procedure was optimized for 
Oracle and/or MSSQL and is hitting some things that aren't such a good idea 
for PostgreSQL.   I highly suggest that you try using log_duration and 
log_statement (and in 7.4 log_min_duration_statement) to try to locate which 
particular statements are taking the longest.
