You lost me here, sorry. What exactly do you want to do? 

While ecpg may not be the choice for new applications, there are a lot
of legacy applications out there that need ecpg to be migrated to
PostgreSQL. So I think, completely removing it is out of the question.

An optional build does not change a thing because it still has to
compile et al. If you mean you'd like to decouple it from the backend
build, that one is difficult because the parser is supposed to accept
exactly the same SQL. And we spend quite a bit of effort to make it
auto-build from the backend parser to make sure we don't lose any
