Installing postgres on a Solaris 8 system for personal use, I discovered that
initdb exceeded the shared memory available on my system (Default settings).
There's enough to run the database, but initdb doesn't probe to low enough

for nconns in 100 50 40 30 20 10
for nbuffers in 1000 900 800 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 50

10/50 is too large, the largest Solaris can handle without changing the
defaults is 10/46. I think it'd be a good idea if initdb probed at least a
little lower here, say to a buffer size of 25, to let it install on Solaris
with default shmem settings.

Please CC me, as I'm not subscribed to these lists.
