Ok thanks, I'll try this.

Ok, that makes sense. I had never learned the proper procedure for
building extensions, but have had success with going into e.g.
contrib/pgcrypto and typing make to build the pgcrypto extension. Since
things like that have generally worked for me I didn't learn about the
proper flags etc.
I'll try some more things and get back to you, thanks for the help.
