PostgreSQL user needs guidance in building sql-library-processing

Three years ago a user posted about a problem with single quotes in the PostgreSQL driver. I’ve hit the same problem – is the intersection of Processing and PostgreSQL really just two users? – and twelve days ago created pull requests at @fjenett’s repo and at Ben Fry’s fork but there’s been no response.

I’ve never tried to pass myself off as a Java programmer so I’d appreciate any step-by-step guidance in building, installing, and testing my fork.
