Others have given you good suggestions, but just as another
data point and possible alternative...
I started using PostgreSQL with CMUCL about four years ago,
*not* with CLSQL, but using Eric Marsden's "PG" library
Pg is a socket-level interface to the PostgreSQL object-relational
Database. The Library implements the client part of the
frontend/backend protocol, so does not require interfacing with
the "libpq" library. SQL types are converted to the equivalent
Common Lisp types where possible. Supports large objects (BLOBs).
That is, it needs no FFI [other than whatever socket support your
Common Lisp has] or matching shared library versions, since it
speaks the PostgreSQL socket protocol directly.
I've been quite happy with it, and currently support several
(low-volume) web sites that use it behind a Lisp-based persistent
