AFAICT the problem is that missing wasn't included in install or

I thought we'd more or less rejected that approach in the previous

David Wheeler and I worked on a way to work around this in the pgTap
extension, but AFAICT there's a bug here. The FreeBSD packages seems to
be built without having PERL on the system, so if you try and use it
with PGXS to set PERL, you end up with

PERL = /bin/sh
/usr/local/lib/postgresql/pgxs/src/makefiles/../../config/missing perl

which is coming out of the PGXS makefile. And that would work fine, if
we were actually installing config/missing.

If instead of installing config/missing we want to just drop that file
completely we can do that, but then we should remove it from sorce and
from the makefiles.

Grr, right after sending this I found the thread you were talking about.

I'm not really sure our missing is better than just letting the error bubble up. If folks think that's better then lets just rip missing out entirely.

If we do decide to keep missing, we should probably clarify it's messages to indicate that the relevant file was missing when *configure was run*.
