I hope you won't be too displeased with the fact that we've deprecated 
our PEAR db
support (which was only being used for postgres). I just found it was 
easier and
simpler maintaining the postgres port when not requiring external 
libraries that
needed to be installed and managed.

Drupal aims to have as few dependencies as possible, and it will take a 
lot of
convincing the get Drupal dependent on any PEAR packages =).

The new install system being prepared for 4.7 will handle this 
automagically for the user,
but patches for the time being would be very welcome.
