Maybe. Maintainer of the postgresql dirver port set iodbc as default driver manager, but in the 
makefile he said that just setting variable DRIVER_MANAGER should do the switch to unixODBC. It doesn't.

Doesn't help

it reports only pthread library

I do not have that. I do know how to use it. I'm quite new to *nix.:-)

By now I've tried to install iodbc, compile the postgresql driver from the same source and test it 
with the same config files. Everything go ok :-). I noted that .odbcini.ini has lines:

[ODBC Drivers]
PostgreSQL = Installed

Does unixODBC also require them?
