Thanks for making that available, Timothy.

I found when I installed it that I had to change the Makefile in the
src directory.  On my system (Debian GNU/Linux 2.1) the include files
from the postgresql-dev package are installed in
/usr/include/postgresql.  I needed to add
to the compiler command in src/Makefile and change the include
statement in src/rpgsql.c to

#include "libpq-fe.h"

I'll check with Kurt Hornik, our autoconf/Makefile guru, to see if
there is a clean way of specifying the Makefile.
