I can't speak for FGS, but I can say that for MS4W the PostgreSQL 7.5 / 
PostGIS application was created before the days of the nice Postgres 
installer (for version 8.0), which now exists.  Now all that 
MapServer/MS4W users have to do is run a simple Postgres and postgis 
installer and they will be installed on their system...so that is why 
(for MS4W) the postgres package is out of date.
However from checking the download stats i see that the Postgres MS4W 
package is still very popular.  So I will look into upgrading it, if 
that is possible with the new installers.
