I don't know if we use the stuff from the pgport lib, probably not, but
we use the output of "pg_config --libs" to figure the required
dependencies to link with postgresql. This is the correct way to do
My take is that if the SuSe maintainers want to remove libpgport.a from
the -devel package, then they should also edit the pg_config script to
not list it.
