At Piarco International (POS, Trinidad), the present terminal building contains 6 international gates in a finger pier while the domestic terminal has one. There are no jetways and so passengers must walk out to the planes. The domestic gateway is at ground level while the international gates are elevated and passengers descend stairs to reach the tarmac.
The new terminal under construction contains 14 gates, of which 12 will feature aviobridges. The other 2 will serve domestic and regional flights flown with turboprop aircraft.

The airport closest to my home? Auburn, WA has 0, but Seattle-Tacoma has 9 fewer because they are rebuilding Concourse A. Frontier, USAirways, TWA and some Southwest flights go to South Sattelite for now.

A picture is worth a thousand words:
AUS has one commuter gate and 24 with jetways for a total of 25. And yes, we have a Gate 13.
Here's another bit of gate number trivia. Austin's new Bergstrom International Airport was supposed to have opened with 20 gates on May 2, 1999. Midway through construction of the terminal due to airline demand, the city council voted to go ahead and open with 25 and five additional gates were added on to the west concourse. The additional gates were actually completed right before the scheduled opening date, but the airlines wanted to have more time to have their employees get familiar with the facility so the airport's opening was delayed three weeks until May 23, 1999.
The next phase will be a 5 gate expansion on the east concourse, and then later the two piers going out from the central terminal.
If you look real close at the airport model (pictured below) that's upstairs on the mezzanine opposite Gate 7, the model only shows the 20 gates the airport was supposed to originally have opened with.

PVD has 14 jet ways in right now, there are slots for 5 more (only 2 are unleased, though wont be for long) so up to 19 jetways. then 5 commuter gates would bring the terminal total to 24 gates. One gate that CO leases is also used to INTL flights. There have been rumors about a perpendicular concourse to the "T" shaped terminal which would have between 6-8 jetwaysand 2-4 commuters. This would force gate 7 to close so the new total would be like 33 gates, that shouldnt be too far into the future.
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Newport News (PHF) has 4 gates:
Gate 2 - jetway, leased to AirTrash - I mean, AirTran
Gate 3 - commuter, leased to US Airways Exp
Gate 4 - commuter, leased to United Exp
Gate 5 - jetway, no jetway installed, not leased.
Of course, the Airport Commission likes to claim we have 8 gates, because Gates 3 and 4 have three doors a piece (3A, 3B, 3C, 4A, 4B, 4C), but the doors are like four feet apart, so that doesn't really count.

Port Columbus International currently has 29 jetways. The airport's Concourse C is going to have another 5 gates added and Concourse A is going to be reconfigured in order to add 2 more gates. Construction will begin in the spring of 2001. When everything is completed in the summer of 2002, CMH will have 36 jetways.
Later plans call for a 50 gate Terminal 2, which will be built in phases as demand warrants, and will be connected to the current terminal by elevated walkways.
