OK, moved.  New code is:

        set_pglocale(const char *argv0, const char *app)
        #ifdef ENABLE_NLS
            char path[MAXPGPATH];
            char my_exec_path[MAXPGPATH];
            /* don't set LC_ALL in the backend */
            if (strcmp(app, "postgres") != 0)
                setlocale(LC_ALL, "");
        #ifdef ENABLE_NLS
            if (find_my_exec(argv0, my_exec_path) < 0)
            get_locale_path(my_exec_path, path);
            bindtextdomain(app, path);

Yep.  I don't see how you can have a library know where to look for its
localized messages.  The only thing I can think of is an environment
variable to override the hard-coded default.  How is that?
