That looks strange.  The dependencies are not, AFAIK, cyclic:
RdbiPgSQL depends on Rdbi.  Can you give us some specifics:

OS, R version, BioC package versions, method of install.


PS: Recent changes in R-devel have broken RdbiPgSQL (functions have
been removed from R's C api.  We're working on a fix).
