The error there says you were unable to connect as the bucardo user, because
of password authentication problems. Applying the fix you did for your
postgres user to the bucardo user will likely solve this problem. The error
messages as a whole make it look like PL/PerlU might be missing, but in fact
the root cause here is that Bucardo can't log in as the bucardo user.
