No. The Glorp version for Squeak/Pharo is still several years old. However,
it has been updated at least to work in the latest Pharo (I guess squeak too
but I am not sure).

You can use Glorp directly and use the PostgreSQL native driver (where you
don't need the postgres client libraries), or you can use GlorpDBX with
SqueakDBX driver, where you need to install OpenDBX and the PostgreSQl
