nvl is an Oracle function that will return the first non-null value. The equivalent in PG is coalesre. You hit a bug... please submit this at the SDM (just mention nvls in several files in the x,y,z modules).
Some of the nvl hits you found are from modules that are not ported at all, like the boomarks module.
