I believe the issue is that those BF members have kernel settings that
only support running one postmaster at a time.  The way you've got this
set up, it launches a new private postmaster during a make installcheck;
which is not only problematic from a resource consumption standpoint,
but seems to me to violate the spirit of make installcheck, because
what it's testing is not the installed postmaster but a local instance.

Can you confine the test to only occur in "make check" mode, not "make
installcheck", please?
