I guess you should also find support from a native FOSS project in your country, It supports several RDBMS including PostgreSQL (with and without PostGIS) and there is also a TerraPHP API. 

You can also find thesis from students from the department where TerraLib is developed at, including mine :)

There was a article with the INPE's FOSS history on this same website but I think they took it off.

Hope it helps,
