Try to adapt the Makefile from src/tutorial to your purposes. Make sure it includes the right
rules by changing

SRCDIR= ..
include ../Makefile.global

to:

SRCDIR= /path/to/your/postgres/source/tree/src
include $(SRCDIR)/Makefile.global

Then name your target files in $(DLOBJS).

You may also want to note the sed rules that substitute anchors such
as _OBJWD_ with the absolute path. They make your sql scripts more
portable (see funcs.source for example.
