*Our* apps are not the problem. The problem comes when libpq is
embedded in somebody else's app --- which is not going to be that
cooperative, and would have no good way to know what path to supply
if it did want to be cooperative.
I can't say I care for the environment variable idea either; though
there may not be any better alternative.
