As of PG 8.2 it is possible to turn those off.  I don't think there's a
lot of enthusiasm for turning them off by default ... at least not yet.
But it might make sense to point out in the PG documentation that
update_process_title is particularly costly on platforms X, Y, and Z.
Do you know if this issue affects all the BSDen equally?

Might be good to turn off by default for the 8.2+ Postgresql versions in the FreeBSD ports tree (looks like postgresql.conf.sample is being patched anyway, so pretty easy to amend).
