Oh, I see that GetModuleFileName() finds the location of your library,
not of the binary.  Nice.  So, for Win32, we use that function call to
find the locale directory?

We do have a comment in port/exec.c:

    if (GetModuleFileName(NULL, retpath, MAXPGPATH) == 0)

and I thought that did only binaries, not the library that uses them.  I
assume if the library is a DLL, it returns the DLL location, and if it
is in the binary, it returns the binary location.

I will make a Win32-specific patch.  Do we want an evironment variable
for Unix?  Seems folks do.  I will work on that too.
