Well, that leaves us with several options, all of which gores someone's ox:

1. Leave the install exactly the way it is now, and Regina continues
to make a "special" one for Windows. Unix and Windows don't match,
directory-wise, but they do match filename-wise. Unix has less version
info in the .sql files than Windows.
2. Change the install to have a versioned postgis-1.5.sql file
installed directly into share/contrib along with all the other .sql
files. Unix and Windows don't match directory-wise or file-wise, but
Unix users get a versioned .sql file to match their .so files.
3. Hack the Makefile to override the pgxs install and installdirs
targets to replicate Regina's Windows scheme. Unix and Windows match
both directory-wise and file-wise, and Unix gets some version
information to go with their .sql files. Mark has a rage-induced
aneurism and dies tragically.

Anyone care to start choosing so we can have a release?
