"only fixed" is exaggerated. Maybe "most cleanly fixed".

fdo#45058: I'm not convinced it is a DLL loading problem, but future
tests will tell us. I'm not convinced it isn't either.

fdo#45090: we could also set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in soffice shell
wrapper, like we do in the *BSD case, or copy the DLL into the .oxt

I'm working on that. Doing a recompile with your patch applied.

I don't see anything very wrong on the patch, but this late in the
development cycle, I'd like someone else than me to review/approve it.

I notice that this makes the PostgreSQL-SDBC code optional to
*install*, but not optional to *compile*. Are we OK with that?
