People who love testing, know how to build and install PostgreSQL. Average
users don't need the black magic of PG_SUBPREFIX. I know some packages expect
libpq to be in PREFIX/lib, but PG_SUBPREFIX might move it somewhere else. In my
opinion it's dangerous, dirty and makes maintaining the package more
Concluding, I would like to remove PG_SUBPREFIX and keep the current PKGNAMEs.
