A though that is occurring to me here would be to add a shlib property
in the control file and have the SQL script use $libdir/$shlib, or even
$shlib maybe.  That would only work for extensions scripts, and even
only for those containing a single .so.

But the only counter example I know of is PGQ, and its install script is
ran by its command line tools.  So PGQ would now ship 2 or 3 extensions
with some dependencies, each with its own .so.  Seems cleaner for me
