I just installed sfio here and built PostgreSQL with it and didn't see any
difference.  Which is not surprising because libsfio doesn't define any
symbols that PostgreSQL uses.  (It's a completely separate interface, all
the functions are named sf*.)  What you'd really need to use is libstdio
(plus libsfio), which is a wrapper.  So I removed the check in configure
because it obviously had a net negative benefit.

Those who want to use it can still add '-lstdio -lsfio' to LIBS.
