If you can load the data with a COPY command, instead of individual
INSERTs, it'll go a lot faster. See also

I've heard lots of people want to increase BLCKSZ, but you're the first
one who ever wanted to reduce it. You sure you want to do this? It's
going to make the maximum row length uncomfortably short.
Anyway, you probably forgot to do a full rebuild after changing config.h.
"make clean" before "make all" is the only way to be sure the
configuration change propagates to all the code. Don't forget you will
have to do an initdb, also, so back up your data with the old code first.
