The unfortunate drawback to using PostgreSQL as your database is the lack of a wide variety of available open source scripts and applications which employ PHP with a PostgreSQL db.
I think your best course of action is going to be finding a classified application written in PHP, but using MySQL as the db, and porting the database calls to PostgreSQL.
Should you take this course of action, I would recommend that you release the port (with the original author's consent, or according to whatever license the original application was released under) back to the community; in this manner, the availability of PHP/PostgreSQL applications can grow.

You could see if the author of Noahs Classifieds will release an update for PostgreSQL support. Otherwise, you may just want to code your own or move to mysql.
