Comment (by rhaas):

 Replying to [comment:1 hinder]:
 > Given that backtraces are very useful, and used to work on "standard"
 linux systems, maybe the code could be enabled despite the problems that
 you mention.  The memory allocation errors and buffers shouldn't be a
 problem since this only happens when the process is about to terminate due
 to the error anyway, right?  Can we detect that we have glibc and Linux,
 and enable the backtrace code in that case?  I know it's not as elegant as
 correctly autoconfing everything, but it's probably a lot easier.  And
 having a backtrace with meaningful symbols is extremely useful.

 I second that :-)
