Well, we could drop those functions and not run tests that require them. 
Or we could possibly install the libraries in $libdir and hack pg_proc 
accordingly. We'd have to install them on both the source and 
destination branches, of course.

Maybe people can think of other possible solutions too. I don't think we 
should give up in this too easily.

Maybe we need to develop a test db specifically for pg_upgrade anyway.
