There's been some discussion before:

The most useful feature IMHO would be if the installed modules could be
recognised as a block (using pg_depends) so that:

1. pg_dump can see them and emit only INSTALL <module>
2. Uninstall removes everything that was installed

This only covers installtion though, not building or compiling.

Have a nice day,
