In py-postgresql I have a depends on PostgreSQL libs so I include
../../mk/  This is fine but I just found out that I
need a build time dependcy on the client as well.  I'm not sure how to
do this in a way that assures me that I have the right version.  I need
to somehow point to the
../../databases/postgresql${_PGSQL_VERSION}-client directory.

In fact, it seems to me that the best way is to include pg_config in
postgresql${_PGSQL_VERSION}-lib instead since that is a function that
finds libraries.  Not much point to that function if you don't have the
PG libraries.
