I'm not sure I've ever used it - that was originally written by Magnus
so I think he handled it originally.
The top of the script has this:
# This script builds tab-complete.inc from tab-complete.c. The
# source file (tab-complete.c) should be copied from the latest
# PostgreSQL sources (src/bin/psql/tab-complete.c), so we don't
# have to do all the work ourselves...
By the looks of it you copy tab-complete.c to pgadmin/utils, and then
run the script in that directory. I wouldn't be surprised if it needs
updating though; the tab completion code does get hacked on quite
regularly in PostgreSQL.
