Not in its current form because PGXS always places files underneath a 
contrib/ subdirectory within datadir. However, if people are happier 
with this approach then it shouldn't be too hard to alter things so that 
my PGXS Makefile would look like this:


MODULE_big=postgis-1.5
MODULEDIR=contrib/$(MODULE_big)


Once in this form it should then be possible to use this code to replace 
the DATA_TSEARCH variable that is currently in place.


ATB,

Mark.
