I wonder if we should set up a pgfoundry package that queries the
OS for the relevant information we find particularly relevant;
including more subtle things like whether or not fsync's lying
and why, and if the OOM killer's enabled.

Then we could tell people who ask this to install the module
and tell them to include the output of pg_system_info();

I might be volunteering to try this for a couple platforms,
but don't really know what's involved in setting up a pgfoundry
project.
