postgresql-client-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2 filesize is 0 in setup.ini

Igor Peshansky
Hi,

I just noticed that the size of postgresql-client-8.0.7-1.tar.bz2 (the
curr version) is set to 0.  Is that intentional?  It doesn't seem to break
setup, but is something to look into, nonetheless.

Yes, that's on purpose.
There are three main packages: postgresql, libpq4 and postgresql-client.
All three of them have existing curr and test packages. The two client
packages should have correct cross-dependencies.

1. Empty not to conflict with the existing postgresql-8.0.7-1, which has
all the client binaries.
2. Existing, because when installing postgresql-client-8.0.7-1 after
having installed 8.1.4-2, to pull in the correct dependencies.

Hmm, the usual way of doing this is creating an empty .tar.bz2 archive,
which is not 0 bytes (it's something like 46).  I'm surprised setup
doesn't croak on a 0-byte archive file.  Oh, well...

I've recreated this as a standard 46 byte empty .tar.bz2 file.
