I was thinking of starting at least the following threads / CF entries once a
few of the remaining things are resolved:

- PGXS compatibility, plus related autoconf simplification patches
- pkg-config files for building postgres extensions
- relative rpath support

I am a bit on the fence about whether it's worth doing so for:

- installcheck equivalent
- precompiled header support (would like it soon, because it reduces
compile-test times substantially)

and, for no really tangible reason, considered
- resource files generation
- docs
- docs dependency

to be part of this thread / CF entry.

Now that I think about it more, I am inclined to also push the docs changes to
a new thread, just for wider visibility.

I think it'd be ok to commit the docs dependency fix soon, without a separate
thread, as it really fixes a "build bug".
