I think you are creating long-term confusion in order to save yourself a
little bit of editing work.  I don't object to having a combined macro
but it shouldn't be called $(libpq).  Maybe $(libpq_plus_support)
or something like that ... or even libpq_plus_libpgport ...

Also think about whether the hack in to add PTHREAD_LIBS
to $(libpq) ought to add them to $(libpq_plus_support) instead.  I'm
not sure about that one ... it might be that you cannot link libpq
successfully without PTHREAD_LIBS in the cases where the hack fires.
