Default apt-get BROKEN (postgresql-client-7.4 lost its "libpq.so.3")... ideas?

Thanks for the reply, Boyd --

There *is* no pidfile for postgres 7.4 (check the original message --
we've got one for 8.1, none for 7.4 .

The real problem is really
"main/usr/lib/postgresql/7.4/bin/pg_controldata: error while loading
shared libraries: libpq.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory."

And now it's got our entire system un-updateable! Apt-get is broken
until we can unravel this. We'd like to remove psql7.4 (using 8.1 just
fine now) but apt is STUCK. Suggestions welcome... Thanks!

Have you followed this instruction and then removed the pid file?
That should convince the init script that postgresql-7.4 is stopped
and let the removal so forward.
