Many of the said projects need to know where libpq and the include files
are. Would it be sensible to create a config/pgsql.m4 file of autoconf
macros that they could use to find them? (Each seems to have its own ideas,
libpq++ seeming not to look at all..)

Next, where do packages tend to install libpq and the include files?
(For me, the default seems to be /usr/local/pgsql/{lib,include}, but for
example libpqxx looks in /usr/lib and /usr/include{,/postgresql} )
