   Here are a few changes to the installation layout for your approval.

   The *.sample files and the initdb input files (BKI) should go into
   PREFIX/share, not lib. Since only initdb has to know about this there
   should be no problems. As for finding these files, the easiest and safest
   method would be to substitute this path into initdb at build time.
   Override with -L is of course possible. (The "lib" mnemonic would be gone,
   think of it as "location".)

As a point of reference, the NetBSD pkgsrc package for postgresql
already puts the following in /usr/pkg/share/postgresql:

     global1.bki.source
     global1.description
     local1_template1.bki.source
     local1_template1.description

Cheers,
Brook
