What do those extensions use to build? Since the unconference I added some
rudimentary PGXS compatibility, but it's definitely not complete yet.

Huh. I've not seen this before - could you provide a bit more detail about
what you did? CI isn't testing ubuntu, but it is testing Debian, so I'd expect
this to work.

Ah, yes. Sorry, that's an open issue that I need to fix. -Dldap=disabled for
the rescue. There's some crazy ordering dependency in macos framework
headers. The ldap framework contains an "ldap.h" header that includes
"ldap.h". So if you end up with the framework on the include path, you get
endless recursion.
