Great! I've applied the patches to my tree, and Bruce or I will
propagate them into CVS. I've also updated our list of supported
platforms :)

We list platforms by "OS" and "Processor". What would be the correct
entries for S/390? Presumably S/390 is the processor, but I'm not
familiar with how IBM does their labeling...

I'll guess that the inet failures are due to differences in bit-shifting
behavior when generating masks. Will you have time to look at it? You
are probably already familiar with the tree, but if not look in
src/backend/utils/adt/ for the inet support.
