Good idea, but that is only going to work on Unix, and in fact only
using certain shells.  I don't think we want to go there, do we?  I
could expand that out to a normal shell _if_ statement, but again, only
works on Unix.

What we _could_ do is to add a comment line at the top that defines a
string that can be supplied, and default it to the port number;  that
would work on Unix and Windows, e.g.

	# uncomment and adjust if you want a special port number
	# PGPORT_STR="-p 5435"
	# export PGPORT

For Windows it would be "REM".  Is everyone happy with that?
