Yes, there are some :)

I only have Gentoo installed on my old laptop that is not in very heavy 
and active use. However, PostgreSQL is installed on it and used every now 
and then.

PostgreSQL migration has always worked fine for me, so it has been 
adequate to install fresher version on some sundry hardware and test the 
migration with it.

This, quite obviously, is only my humble opinion and based on my limited 
experience :)
