Since many #ifdef COMPAT_... turned into hooks but noone handled those
hooks for non x86 archs, many COMPAT_* options are broken in -current.
Example: COMPAT_16 and sendsig_sigcontext_vec is NULL on most archs.

watch "sendsig: invalid version 1" messages when running old binaries.

create a list of hooks to fill and tell postmasters about it?
