Not in 7.3 AFAIR.  In 7.4 a full-database VACUUM VERBOSE will end with
the info you want:

regression=# vacuum verbose;
... much cruft ...
INFO:  free space map: 11 relations, 144 pages stored; 272 total pages needed
DETAIL:  Allocated FSM size: 1000 relations + 20000 pages = 178 kB shared memory.

This tells me I'm only using about 1% of the FSM space (272 out of 20000
page slots).

You know you have to restart the postmaster to make those changes take
effect, right?
