[Pkg-postgresql-public] libdbi-drivers FTBFS due to different PostgreSQL versions

libdbi-drivers has a self-test with PostgreSQL. It starts the database
daemon with a specific temporary directory. To get the binaries
location, 'pg_config --bindir' is used. Currently this is the
transitive cause of the build (self-test) failure[1]: libpq-dev which
ships pg_config is version 9.6 and report it's binary directory, while
the default postgresql package is the 9.5 version. Thus the test
script can't start postgres from the non-existent 9.6 path. Is there
any other way to get the actual postgres path? Any plan to update the
default postgresql packages to the 9.6~rc1 version?
