Implement a few changes to how shared libraries and dynamically loadable
modules are built.
Seems this patch has broken all the Windows buildfarm animals ... is
anybody on that?

    Not all, only those that use the Makefile build system, i.e. MSVC is not
    failing, but MinGW and Cygwin are.

    Specifically, we are failing thus during initdb:

    creating conversions ... FATAL: could not access file "$libdir/ascii_and_mic": No such file or directory


    I can't immediately see the cause, although presumably it's the changes in Makefile.shlib that have done it.

    Maybe we need to set up a Windows machine or two somewhere so that committers can test out stuff like this ...

    cheers

    I offered this before, and nobody was interested at the time. I don't
    have the resources to do it right now if it would be interesting now,
    but I think we can put one up in a VM on one of the community managed
    servers actually - as long as you don't need performance, that's
    certainly doable.

    (I don't have a working mingw env at all right now, still
    working on setting up a proper VM with windows + msvc since
    changing job, so I can't look at this specific issue right now
    myself)
