I've just solved a problem with referencing magic blocks in plugins.

I can't see anything documented on this and I suspect others have seen
this before...
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-general/2007-04/msg00908.php

While compiling with PGXS, the OBJS line said
	OBJS	= modulename.so

which then gave the error
ERROR:   .... missing magic block

By changing the OBJS line to this
	OBJS	= modulename.o

then no error was received and it all works.

TFM just says "list objects files in OBJS".

It's a minor docs issue, but if y'all agree then we should add a few
more lines of wisdom in this area.
