I'm not familiar with checkinstall, but the pgAdmin build system makes
no attempt to install the .desktop file. When it was added to the
tree, the XDG specs weren't widely followed so it's inclusion was
largely a convenience for anyone that wanted it. Nowadays, if someone
wanted to spend some time fixing the build system to install the file
and icon etc, I'd have no objections - pkg/Makefile.am would be the
place to start.
