I think that is a really, really bad idea.  If we're gonna do it we
should just do it.  We don't need multiple incompatible file formats
running around all calling themselves PG 7.3.

Configure options are generally not a solution to anything anyway,
since more and more people use RPM distributions and don't have the
option to make their own configure choices.
