We might want to link it into other binaries in the future, therefor it
should not go under psql/.
It's platform specific, therefor it should go in port/.

Why exactly is this? I asked before, and the only response I ever got
(off-list) was that we actually could...

>b) cannot put binary files without source in our CVS

See (a).

The source is in .ai format, and there is manual work to convert it into
a good quality .ico, from what I read on the authors page. AFAIK, .ai is
also binary, and it's hard to put a person in a Makefile.

Is it the concept of non-sourcecode, or is it the fact that it's
actually binary that is the issue? E.g. will it help if we for example
uuencoded it and then just uudecode:ed it in a build rule?
