I'm fairly certain that this is a bug in DBD::Pg, and not in Bugzilla. I've had
another user report it, who discovered that it was a DBD::Pg bug. I'd suggest
upgrading DBD::Pg, and then if that doesn't work, contacting the authors of
DBD::Pg for a fix.

upgrading to most recent version (DBD-Pg-1.43) detects Postgres 8 correctly.
Please update checksetup.pl and the relevant documentation.

Well, we don't officially support Pg 8 yet, but I'll probably make a release
note, or somehow modify checksetup to deal with this.

mkanat, I suggest to close this bug as bug 297475 already mentions that DBD::Pg 1.41 is required for Pg 8.

Agreed. WONTFIX in favor of a documentation note, both in the relnotes and in the docs themselves. (It's not noted in checksetup, though.)
