This patch breaks building outside the source tree in a very elaborate 
and obvious way.  Unfortunately, this is all tied together so I haven't 
figured out yet if it can be fixed easily.

Also, the use of the install targets is a bit strange 
(install-all-headers install libpgport.a).  I would simply not bother 
and install everything all the time.  However, those who advocate the 
install-all-headers target may want to propose a different scheme.

This is redundant.  I think by now I'm looking for a patch that does not 
touch contrib at all (except perhaps contrib-global.mk).  Much of the 
trouble arises from being too clever around there.  We're trying to 
allow external modules to build, not internal ones.
