Basically, I was envisioning some option like

--enable-local-installation-layout
--enable-playpen-installation

just something, um, better.  (If we name them --with-perldir, then 51% of
the users will think that's the location where Perl itself is installed.)

Actually, if you do opt for the "playpen" version then the actual choice
of installation directory shouldn't be so interesting.  The only
reasonable place is ${libdir}/postgresql, unless you want to make up your
own file system standard.

This is currently the default behaviour, if you recall. ;-)
