There's actually no reason we couldn't test this in the buildfarm.
Turning it on unconditionally is a one-line change. Making it happen
just on the right platforms would be a few more lines, but nothing much.
It breaks the dblink regression tests, so we'd either have to get around
that or turn it off when checking contrib. I can add this if you think
it's worth it.
But I did try it on my FBSD/x86_64 VM and it passed the tests up till it
got to dblink, so there's another data point for you anyway.
