As someone who has NOT attempted such a conversion, I just want to point
out that PostgreSQL has special data type support and various features
related to relational integrity that MySQL does not have, so this would be
like running modern perl code on a Perl 4 interpreter... if the job is
simple, it might work, but if you have been solving real world problems
with it then it might be rather difficult.

The obvious thing is to scan through looking for data elements
(inserts) and extract them as you need them... presumably with perl :)
