Hi Grzegorz,

In my PostgreSQL, the select version() returns only:

"PostgreSQL 8.3.7, compiled by Visual C++ build 1500"

without OS/platform info like yours does.

In such way you can determine OS and bit's of hardware in which
PostgreSQL were compilied, not current server.

For example I have Debian 5 and select version(); returns:

PostgreSQL 8.3.14 on i486-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC gcc-4.3.real
(Debian 4.3.2-1.1) 4.3.2
