I think we can make it a bit easier on them and also easier on people who just want the commandline tools
1) Right now you can't compile the commandlines without having postgres installed unless you hack the make scripts
2) It has come to my attention that raster2pgsql has a dependency on libpq. I'm not sure why it should when I thought it just emits SQL similar to shp2pgsql (which has no libpq dependency).
So this sounds like a dependency that may be accidental.

Something to think about for our 3.0 release.
Might need to be ticketed and assigned to packagers? It's not a big ask, but it's easy to forget if they just copy'n'ship the old specs.
