There are also the "portability fixes" and they're the main problem.

I've simply removed things like capsicum or __FBSDID() because I thought
it wouldn't be a problem since Postgres will have its own copy of indent
anyway (so that its behavior is not a moving target). I can ifdef-out
them instead of removing entirely, I just didn't think it was important

I expect to be in trouble for replacing err() and errx(), though.

That will need a proper fix...

That looks very good.

I can be convinced to make it another option upstream. But I dislike it
