psycopg2-binary fails if pg_config isn't installed, which is provided by

This seems strange to me since psycopg2-binary suggests that
you use psycopg2-binary instead (of itself) if you don't want to build
psycopg2 so you wouldn't need pg_config, which is very confusing.

It's possible that psycopg2-binary only needs to compile itself on
non-x86 platforms, since I hit this on ppc64le.

Anyway, it works when this is added.
