This is not an install problem, it is a build problem.  PHP cannot be
built (except in a stripped-down form) without Postgres already built.
If we try to build plPHP as part of the Postgres package then we have
the same problem in the other direction.  We are going to be very
unloved by packagers if we try to force them to deal with that
(and remember I work for Red Hat nowadays ... in fact it would be *me*
having to deal with the fallout from circular build dependencies).
