This was my idea.  Rather than making statics as globals, they are
global only for exec() builds.  This seemed safest.  They need to be
extern for exec() because we need to reference them in a function that
writes all the postmaster globals to a file.  We could have had a write
function in every C file that needed it and call the write function from
postmaster.c, but that seems like too much bloat.  If we make them
extern in all builds we lose the safety of a static.

Your other comments are good and I will wait for Claudio to respond.
