So when I removed the miscadmin.h include, I found out that pg_ctl is
also relying on PG_BACKEND_VERSIONSTR from that file.
There are at least three things we could do here:
1. Give this up as not worth this much trouble.
2. Move PG_BACKEND_VERSIONSTR into pg_config.h to go along with the
other version-related macros.
3. Give PG_BACKEND_VERSIONSTR its very own new header file.
