Well, this is exactly the problem: the psqlodbc distribution is missing
files needed to build from source, ie, the reference to $PGSRC/config
in the directions.  Since $PGSRC/config is also not installed by
Postgres packages, this leaves RPM packagers unable to build psqlodbc
according to the rules.  The whole thing seems like bad practice anyway,
since it's unclear which version of the Postgres sources needs to be
used to build any particular psqlodbc release.
