FreeBSD Port: postgresql-server-8.3.6

I'm looking through the RC script used to manage PostgreSQL 8.3 and  
I'm curious about the defaults used for the postgresql_flags variable.  
The script sets the default value to "-w -s -m fast". What were these  
supposed to do?

Both -w and -m appear to be invalid flags for postgresql 8.3. The -s  
option is documented as "show statistics after each query".

The text of the script is as follows:

postgresql_flags=${postgresql_flags:-"-w -s -m fast"}
