My recommendation to Christoph upthread was that they just look the
other way for the time being, ie, ignore the fact that relpath.h is
unusable by freestanding apps in 9.3.  Backpatching what I did for
9.4 would be an ABI break, so that seems to me to be out of the
question in 9.3.  And it's not clear that anybody outside core+contrib
really needs relpath.h yet, anyway.  (Of course, you could argue that
if there are no external users then the ABI break isn't a problem;
but if there are, then it is.)
