To avoid overheating of this pretty hot discussion, I would like just to
propose "a more elaborated fix" (for REL_10_STABLE and master).
In fact, when we perform "make installcheck" it not only requires us to
build ecpg, but it also rebuilds libpostgres, libpgport and libpq (for
I believe that the larger testing surface (coverage), the better, so
using installed assets (libs, headers) is more useful.

Regarding "remote installcheck", that was discussed recently, the
proposed patch complicates this, but opens a way to implement it correctly.
Think of distinct target "remotecheck", that will not define
USE_INSTALLED_ASSETS, but will account for remote connection to server
and run only supported tests.
