Gentoo's ebuild includes:

   $(use_enable !pg_legacytimestamp integer-datetimes) \

meaning that by default --enable-integer-datetimes is passed to configure,
but if the pg_legacytimestamp use flag is set, then --disable-integer-datetimes
is passed instead.

They document it as:

    <flag name="pg_legacytimestamp">
        Use double precision floating-point numbers instead of 64-bit
        integers for timestamp storage.
    </flag>

Ie, w/o any kind of deprecation notice.

I don't know how many (how few?) add pg_legacytimestamp to USE when
merging postgresql.  But it is still available as of 9.6 and also
with their live build of git://git.postgresql.org/git/postgresql.git.
