I'm a little uncomfortable with introducing a cross-platform variation
in the standard block size. That would have implications for things
like whether a table definition that works on FreeBSD could be expected
to work elsewhere; to say nothing of recommendations for shared_buffer
settings and suchlike.
Also, there is no infrastructure for adjusting BLCKSZ automatically at
configure time, and I don't much want to add it.
