Nice, thank You. :-)

The root of the problem is the quality of qgis' FindPostgres.cmake.
provides a working module since version 2.8.4, released in 2011...)

Long story, the introduction of proj6 has created some failures not all
trivial to fix. the sr made is one of the "bad" things, the usage of

pg_config was never really meant to be used for programs using libpq. But for
lack of better alternatives everyone started using it in the past. There is a
better alternative now pkg-config libpq.

so inside Application:Geo we have to help upstream to get ready for proj 6
usage, help upstream package to use pkg-config libpq.

For example gdal will be soon ready for that, with proper upstream patch.
next to fix grass (7.6.1 support proj 6), etc... and the cascade is long,
and time consuming.

Bug report, and SR fixing are always welcomed.
