Not really helpful but a bit of explanation:

The bootstrap* tries to install the *server-side* procedural
language "pg/SQL". For that it needs a shared library that
contains the language implementation. The file is called and the bootstrap* searches in the abovementioned
directories (know to hold that file in various distributions).

The bootstrapping process has *semantically nothing* to do
with pyPgSQL - which is a *client-side* PostgreSQL access
library for Python. So, generally speaking, pyPgSQL isn't
necessary for bootstrapping at all.

However: The bootstrap* DOES need pyPgSQL because it needs a
way to access the PostgreSQL server (because it is a client
itself). But this seems to work just fine on your machine
because apparently the bootstrap* did successfully do a few
things before failing on installing pg/SQL ...
