Forcing another plan by configuration parameters would help.
For example, "set enable_hashagg to off" makes the planner to try
to avoid using HashAggregate for grouping. If you got a plan
using HashAgregate, you will get another one using GroupAggregate
What you can do otherwise would be building PG with
CFLAGS="-DOPTIMIZER_DEBUG". This will show you a bit more than
debug_print_plan, but the query you mentioned is too simple so
that planner has almost no alternative. Creating some index (say,
on age) would give planner some alternatives.
Have a good day,
