I think there's a couple other patches that have the same effect (that is, 
initdb is required to take care of them).   I think people using the beta 
should expect to re-build several times, anyway -- if they're not, they 
shouldn't use beta software.

Also, this is basically a "documentation" bug, intended to make 
postgresql.conf easier to understand, so even if some beta tester doesn't 
load it, postgresql.conf still works ..
