Hi PostgreSQL developers!

The current Debian package has some patches that tweak the building of
contrib modules. I think they would be interesting for other
distributions, too. Most of this stuff was contributed by users who
actually use these modules.

 - additionally install some useful scripts and data files

 - enable mysql module build
 - add Makefile
 - fix hashbang of mysql2pgsql

 - enable oracle module build
 - add Makefile
 - patch to look for additionally in the path
   where is installed

 - enable xml module build
 - Makefile: add CFLAGS for "-I/usr/include/libxml2" to allow building

 - add better error checking to dbf2pg

 - add dbf2pg support for the dbase field 'M' which corresponds to
   PostgreSQL's TEXT field

Do you consider adopting them in the official version?

Thanks a lot and have a nice day!
