Maybe http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-general/ could be helpful? 
Maybe not. It isn't clear to me what exactly you mean by "Postgres 
complaining that it's running out of database handles" as that doesn't 
sound much like any complaint I've seen from Postgres.

It may be relevant that the MacOS Perl environment is rather lame by 
default, so if you haven't built an alternative Perl environment you may 
be working with some Perl modules that are outdated or have been given 
some special Apple touch so that they aren't quite like they should be.
