Those initdb defaults were last touched in 2005, before the use of
System V shared memory was reduced to a minimum.  It might be worth
revisiting that.  The only way to end up with a low number of connection
slots would seem to be a very low semaphore configuration.

In the build farm, I have found 6 critters that do not end up with the
100/128MB setting: sidewinder, curculio, coypu, brolga, lorikeet,
opossum.  I wonder what limitations initdb is bumping against.
