I believe that the current schemas are at:-

The last time I tried with postgres,  I believe the biosqldb-pg.sql alone 
was sufficient (i am relying on hazy memories here, anyone else know 
better?) and the drop-tables.sql is useful for cleaning up.  Performance 
was quite slow but Thomas Down found that introducing a further index 
improved things:-

create index seqfeatureloc_seqfeature on location (seqfeature_id);

I don't know if this has been committed since.  If you have performance 
problems with postgres, do investigate adding indices to the postgres case.
