The best course of action would be to do:

mv earthdistance pgsql-server/contrib
ln -s pgsql-server/contrib/earthdistance .
cd ~/open_source/postgresql/CVSROOT
patch -p0 < ~/earthdistance.patch  # edits modules
cvs ci modules
[Send a HEADSUP to -hackers]

[Add a TODO entry for pgsql admins to remove the symlink after pgsql
hits 8.0 or some sufficiently long, but not overly long period of

cvs up's, cvs co's with old scripts, and new cvs exports/co's will
work as expected.
