Hmm. I think the issue I was having is that I wanted to test the extension
handling in pg_dump's 'make check' run, but that's before any of those
extension pieces are installed or tested.

However, perhaps I can test the pg_dump parts as part of the extension
'make check' runs instead. Will check it out.
