The format is copyrighted by EADS, so you will have little chance to get it read without using their software, or doing something that might be considered as violating their copyright. See also: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DE:OVL (assuming you understand German if you use data from that format). There is not just one binary format, but already 4 ...
The Geogrid viewer and the Software that is designed for using .ovl can read both binary (new OVL) and ASCII (old OVL) format, but GPSBABEL only can read the ASCII one. The format is copyrighted by EADS, so you will have little chance to get it read without using their software. I heard that TTQV can read the binary format too, but I guess they have paid ...
I just searched for this using Google and it looks like *.ovl files may be Geogrid-viewer ascii overlay files that can be read by GPSBabel.

Because spatialreference.org pre-dates PostGIS 2.0, when the SRID key limitation was added No problems with your workaround sr.org is basically defunct, there's no active maintainers, you can file a ticket for posterity and the next maintainers at http://trac.osgeo.org/metacrs/ under the sr.org category. The '9' was probably tacked on to avoid conflicting ...
