I think there is something wrong with your setup procedures, because
I've never needed such.  (I've corresponded with Joe off-list about
this --- maybe we can produce a FAQ about the right way to do it once
the dust settles.)

AFAICS this would defeat the documented behavior of being able to set
PGHOST/PGPORT in the environment to control which postmaster "make
installcheck" will speak to.  So, yeah, I think it's a bad idea.
