Fwiw I'm not attached to using COPT and friends, I just happend to
pick these because that was one way that worked. With what I've
learned now, PG_*FLAGS is the better approach.

The attached patch adds these three.

Re backpatching, I would at least need them in PG11 because that's
what is going to be released with Debian buster. An official backpatch
to all supported versions would be nice, but I could also sneak in
that change into the Debian packages without breaking anything.
