If you carefully check the error message, it is clearly written:

RS-PostgreSQL.h:23:26: fatal error: libpq-fe.h: No such file or directory

Some header files are missing.
Here is the result of a quick search on the web: "libpq-dev" for Ubuntu.

If I may suggest, you should upgrade the version of R.
