FWIW, I tried a build with today's unstable on mips, after enabling
the server packages again. There was one failure in the testsuite:

test geometry             ... ok
test horology             ... failed (ignored)
test insert               ... ok
test create_function_1    ... ok
     polymorphism         ... ok
test stats                ... ok
============== shutting down postmaster               ==============

 92 of 93 tests passed, 1 failed test(s) ignored.

The resulting sever packages installed fine, no obvious failure
(but OTOH I don't know what a serious test would be).
