Where/how does one set this?  In postgresql.conf or on the file system
or during compilation of postgres?  I'm on FreeBSD 4.8 still.

I've got a box right now on which I'm comparing the speed merits of
hardware RAID10, RAID5, and RAID50 using a filesystem benchmark
utility (bonnie++).  If I have time I'm gonna try different striping
block sizes.  Right now I'm using 32k byte stripe size.
