Thanks Christoph

 I'm not aware of packages that make use of the -client package. The server
is set up with this Dockerfile:

Running these two commands were enough to get the client package installed
for me:

mkdir -p /usr/share/man/man7/ && touch
mkdir -p /usr/share/man/man1/ && touch /usr/share/man/man1/psql.1.gz
