It's a known problem in ubuntu, the name of libkrb53 changed to libkrb5-3. I suggest you download and install the library from this link, this is how someone solved it in ubuntu. If it still gives you an error, make a symlink pointing to libkrb5-3 called libkrb53.

You can get libpq5 from here.

Although your best option is to go with the latest version of Postgres from the repo's unless you really need that version.

Postgresql 8.3.7 is not in the sqeeze version, it is postgresql 8.4. So how do you install this specific version ? Why don't install the last release with apt-get install postgresql ?
