No, it's two lines (rm -rf, ln -s).  It'll take many more lines than
that to do it in the Postgres configure/build system, even using the
simpler symlink approach.  And quite aside from the code addition, what
of documentation?  How much text will it take to make clear what this
switch is good for and when it's safe to use?

I just don't see the value of supporting this option in our
configuration infrastructure.  Anyone who is competent to determine
whether it's a safe thing to use is more than competent to alter the
installation that way for themselves.
