Documentation mistake.  Thierry, the main author, is French, was working 
for an Italian firm at the time of that release, and trying to document
in English.  Not an ideal situation.

If you installed postgres and postgres-dev from debian, it should have
installed clean.  The packages were developed under Debian!
Also note that zope-zpopyda and python-popy are part of debian.

The Debian version of these packages are a bit stale.  I should have
new ones uploaded by Next Monday.

Also, there is a far newer version available from
http://www.sourceforge.net/package/projects/popy
and
http://www.sourceforge.net/package/projects/zpopyda
