All done. I had a chat with Dave (Page) at PGDay and we decided that
although it appears that PGXS should automatically install binaries into
the PostgreSQL bindir, the fact that it adds certain extra backend
dependencies into the link line means it shouldn't really be used like this.
Hence I've re-built the loader Makefile from scratch to use the new
build system, using the old 1.3 branch Makefile as inspiration. Please
feel free to re-test.
