I don't see why it'd need to be done together. The minimal version
would be a simple cmake file that just sets a bunch of variables from
pg_config, provides a few rules for specifying the current pgxs stuff,
and an example stanza how to include that file. We'd have to duplicate
some of the pgxs specific logic, but that's probably not too bad.
