On an powerPC AIX 5.3 box, initdb from 8.1beta4 segfaults at 
src/backend/utils/hash/dynahash.c:673.  No segfaults occur and all 98 
regression tests pass if a test is added to see if keycopy is memcpy and 
if it is, go through a loop memcpying one byte at a time instead of 
memcpying everything at once.

Configuration details:
-bash-2.05b$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
