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?

Another thing that's annoying about this is that it doesn't give you any idea of how it's failing if there's a database difference. All we get is:


See <http://www.pgbuildfarm.org/cgi-bin/show_log.pl?nm=frogmouth&dt=2011-11-28%2019%3A30%3A03> for an example. For buildfarm purposes this is pretty low grade info, ISTM.
