The inclusion or exclusion of support for different DBs is
determined at build time. The good news is that the code you
wrote for 6.4.2 should work for all future 6.4.x without
needing any changes. The bad news is that whoever built 6.4.3
on that system will have to rebuild/replace it with a version
of 6.4.3(rc/svn) that was built with support for the Postgres
optional extra.
