That's talking about the data_directory and the various foo_file
settings, though; it doesn't apply to the include settings.  Note
especially that config_file says it can only be set on the postgres
command line.  (I think a saner definition would have been to state that
relative paths are not allowed in the command line.  But that ship has
already sailed.  And relative paths seem useful in the config file; and
maintaining the distinction that they are allowed within the config file
but not in the command line might be awkward.)

(Uhm, when a command line contains stuff, is the stuff "in" the command
line or "on" it?)
