Replying to myself:

No.  Actually, Christian, it looks like it's runtime_library_dirs?

class Extension:
...
      runtime_library_dirs : [string]
        list of directories to search for C/C++ libraries at run time
        (for shared extensions, this is when the extension is loaded)

So, how does one inject that into, I assume, setup.cfg ?  Ideally it
could be done via the build command-line, but I don't see a way to do
that when browsing python setup.py build --help

( there is no setup.cfg provided in the PyGreSQL source tree, to )
( continue that example case                                     )
