This might be useful to some: I built a jail for the bacula 
<http://www.bacula.org/> project so they could run regression tests 
on FreeBSD.  I installed PostgreSQL in the host environment.  They 
access the database from within the jail.  They install a PostgreSQL 
client, and then access the database via TCP/IP.

Granted, this doesn't achieve the goal that I think you need: namely, 
a PostgreSQL instance in each jail.
