	When postgresql is normally installed, the header files needed
to extend the backend (e.g., to write triggers or functions) are not
installed.  Consequently, it is impossible to write triggers or
functions without manually dredging these files from the extracted
source code.  This package installs a bunch of extra header files to
support programming backend extensions.

Note that this package does not pass pkglint.  It is patterned exactly
after the series of postgresql packages, all of which include a
Makefile.common.  pkglint does not know about that file, and hence
complains about an incorrectly formated Makefile.  Nevertheless, I
think the Makefile is ok.
	Install postgresql package and try to include spi.h or trigger.h.
