One issue is that the postgresql.conf file only gets installed as part

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.

Actually, I agree with this, but from a different angle ... if testing beta, part of that testing is that an initdb does what is expected and doesn't generate any errors/problems ... when we go into RC mode, *then* things should be safe from an initdb, but beta shouldn't have that requirement ...
