That's actually a pretty cool idea--compile and generate debs/rpms
that reflect the user's choices, then install them.  But the
dependency on a compiler adds a twist of complexity--"sorry, you need
to install the following system packages (gcc, etc) before you can
install Postgres as you've configured it."  Not horrible, but perhaps
intimidating for the GUI crowd?  :)  Is gcc in the bog-standard
default install on FC these days?

Certainly you can install pre-built binaries without a compiler, and
let the user choose database location, autovacuum settings and stuff
like that.

Good luck!
