Have you got any postgresql-server-dev package installed?  If not, then
pg_config is going to grab the info for the libpq-dev that's installed,
but I doubt the extension is going to compile without the server-dev
package installed anyway..

In any case, pgxnclient should probably be more intelligent when it's
working under a Debian-based installation where multiple major versions
of PG can be installed.

I don't believe the 9.3 version of libpq is the issue here at all, see
