I'm inclined to say that it should work but probably doesn't everywhere.
But I need to fix this because all the scripts currently contain ``
sequences that need to be double-quoted because otherwise they will fail
if the installation path contains whitespace. (See those ${PATHNAME}
things.)

For now I might have to resort to yanking that PATHNAME logic again and
use the new pg_dumpall since it appears to magically work.
