Clients don't have visibility into $PG_DATA, do they? Just ran into this
working on the ODBC interface, trying to find a place for a system-wide
configuration file. Ended up putting it in $POSTGRESDIR by default.

The /var/run option (or something similar) seems to be a good way to
head, if we can get enough support on the different platforms. Actually,
this could be an autoconf test, couldn't it?
