Quick review:

Lintian run:
W: bucardo source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.7.2 (current is 3.8.1)
E: bucardo: dir-or-file-in-var-run var/run/bucardo/

bucardo.postinst and bucardo.postrm don't do anything useful -- remove them.

bucardo.default appears to be redundant -- if you install the package, the 
daemon should be started.  At least there is no reason given why it shouldn't.

The init script should perhaps have a Should-Start: postgresql?

It would be good to use /lib/lsb/init-functions in the init script.

There is a new section "database" that you should use.

Add Homepage control field.

Explicitly licensing the Debian packaging of a BSD-licensed package under the 
GPL is bad form and pointless obstructionism in my opinion, especially since 
the packaging is trivial.  Please consider changing that.

I think it would be preferrable to package DBIx::Safe separately, directly 
from CPAN, and then package only Burcado from this Burcado source tarball.
