Well, to answer my own question, it was a bizarre bundling issue. In
a random thought to simplify a bit, when bundling the Postgres library
libpq I renamed it to just 'libpq.dylib', leaving out the library
version. I'm sure I got all the install_name references to it in
Qgis, but either I missed one (there were no errors in the console) or
libpq just didn't like it.
So, left it as libpq.5.dylib, changed all the install_name references
to match, and no more invalid postgis layers.
