install.pl deploys by default the dll of modules needed for the tests,
so no objections. Don't you think the TAP scripts in src/test/perl
should be installed as well? I think that this would make sense for
consistency with what other Nix platforms do, but there is no real
installation of PGXS there. So perhaps they could be deployed in a
different path like scripts/perl?
