John,

Download the source.

In the modules directory there is 'mysql' and there is also 'postgres'.
You can edit the main Makefile, remove 'postgres' from the
exclude_modules declaration.  Compile and install.

I have not worked with the 0.8.14 version at all.  I know the postgres 
works
with 0.8.12, I've been using in production.  There is probably some 
work to be done to
make postgres module work with 0.8.14, I don't know.  I need to make 
some time
to work on that, but I haven't yet.

Please keep this on the list!
