I decided against bundling the two operations together. Here's a patch
to add PQprepare() and PQsendPrepare() in a fairly self-contained way.
Also attached is a test program à la testlibpq3.c that I used to test
the change. This should be all that's needed for DBD::Pg to prepare a
statement without pre-specifying types.

(I'll post a separate patch for PQdescribe() later. It's a little more
involved, and I need to fix a couple of bugs I found during testing.)

Any thoughts? Does this look good enough for 8.0?
