A poor choice of example, because in fact I am planning to delete it ;-).
There's no need for it anymore, because there's no longer any compile-
time limit on MaxBackends.  In general we'd like to move away from
compile-time feature settings, except for cases like SSL or Kerberos
support where the feature depends on software you may not have.

I don't really see why you think it's preferable to use an extra
configure switch than to set a variable in postgresql.conf.
