That's not a good sign...

Have you created a bug ticket on this with the error?  You need to try to get
some form of communication going with the project developers if you're ever
going to get postgresql support.

My personal recommendation would be to get some type of official commitment
that they will support postgresql in the mainline code, and then start
sending small patches that fix issues you come up with (as opposed to the one
big "here is postgres support" patch).  You can then judge if they are
honestly going to support postgresql by how quickly these patches get
committed.

If you need technical support for specific error, your probably better off
asking for help on something like pgsql-php@ mailing list.  While this type
of development is great as an advocacy tool, we've yet to get anyone to put
resources behind it, and it's more of a technical problem once you get to
discussing specific error messages.
