Try asking on the PHP lists - I have no doubt that is the 
problem, so simply disabling that line in php.ini should then allow apache to 
start. It is failing probably because something is not set right on the link 
between pdo_pgsql and pastgres but we would need a little more detail to 
establish the setup of these.
