Yeah, that is definitely MIT rather than BSD, even though the PostgreSQL
folks think it is BSD.

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion around BSD vs MIT, and while
they have the same general license compatibility with respect to things
like GPL, they are not the same license.

I've fixed Postgresql's tag in CVS, there should be no need to push
updates for it simply to fix this tag, but any future updates should
retain the fixed license tag.
