+1 for just do it.  There is not a whole lot of point to refactoring the
package if dependent packages don't pick up the refactoring.

AFAIR, the only reason postgresql BR's this is because libcom_err is
depended on by krb5, which it uses.  I wonder whether the separate BR is
still needed at all --- shouldn't a BR on krb5-devel be sufficient?
