Actually if you are getting that you might, theoretically, be done--the 
"make test" won't succeed because it needs a server running on 
localhost to succeed, but if you just do the "make install" and 
set up a script to connect to the right machine it would work.  

You might be able to look in the t/ directory (I think that's where
the tests would be) and see where it connects to the database and
set the parameters to point to the server on the other machine.  Or
you might be able to set (more) environment variables before you do the 
"make test" that set the database host and port (I can't remember if
Postgres looks in the env. for those parameters or not). 

I'm out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that if you got 

    error: Pg::connectdb.....not ok: connectDB() == connect() failed: Connection refused

that probably means that the extension compiled ok.

But if you are googling that you may already know all this :).
