That's true but in that it's not different from Test::postgresql, as far as I can see.
From Test::postgresql docs:
[...] If required programs (initdb and postmaster)
were not found, the function returns undef and sets
appropriate message to $Test::postgresql::errstr.
I think it's really only DBD::SQLite that will give you a complete package, from scratch.
( Probably one could create a package with all the bits to run a PostgreSQL instance from the binaries from the EnterpriseDB site , but that looks like quite an undertaking...:
(cannot run as root)
"Binaries from installer version 9.2.1"
-- to use, unzip the pgsql directory somewhere, and cd into it:
-- run initdb:
./bin/initdb -D 9.2/data
-- start postgres:
./bin/pg_ctl/ -D 9.2/data -l logfile start
-- run tests...
-- to stop, close all connections, then:
./bin/pg_ctl -D 9.2/data -l logfile stop
-- cleanup all files
Hm, I don't know - possible but error-prone, probably...
