A little late, but I'm starting to look at installing 1.4 and it's a
little disheartening to find a reference to tsearch2 when trying to install.

Why not go for at least 9.0 for 1.4? After all, isn't it a fair
assumption that people installing a new version also would have a recent
postgresql version?

Distros like RHEL are typically lagging quite a lot in the versions they support. Yet exactly these distros I would expect to be used in a business environment due to their support contracts.

The table on http://ledgersmb.org/faq#n34 states our current exact plans regarding PostgreSQL support for future versions. (8.4+ on 1.4 and 9.1+ on 1.5).
