IIRC, when this patch was posted, pg_config was a shellscript. Definitly
when the original version of the patch was posted. But sure, I should
probably have updated it when that changed.

Do you have any ideas on *how* to do this? Or specifically which parts
you don't like (or is it the whole concept)?  I had no idea you were
holding off based on that. I've asked repeatedly for comments about what
is bad, and this is the first time I heard something about the new patch
(other than the location of the files and the inclusion of the icon
which Peter E commented on sevearal times), if I'm not mistaken. 

Part of the versioninfo struct is file-specific, part is product
specific. I see no way around it other than having some parts of it in
every Makefile. Sure, we could have some kind of central mapping file
somewhere, but I would consider that *less* maintainable.

I specifically did not include contrib modules. That can be done once we
have a final verdict on exactly how it should be.
