Possibly - but there is perhaps a difference between files needed so
that a program can link in libpq3.so or libecpg.so and those needed
because the program expects to build in the postgresql source tree and
needs to be tightly linked in with a particular PostgreSQL version.  I
think I will wait to see just which files are needed before I decide.
