ISTM that if the user actually goes through the trouble of building the
driver himself (as opposed to downloading the jar file) as well as
configuring with a non-standard port (as opposed to configuring the port
at runtime) he probably wants the JDBC driver in on that deal.  It also
seems unlikely that he would take this driver and send it to some random
person to make a point about "run anywhere".

It's still this way.  As I said, only people that use configure
--with-pgport see any change, and those people know what they're getting

the current directory, even if it's absolute.  Might be an old version of
