I believe this is gcc-4.9's fault, also seen in postgresql-9.4. The
issue seems to be something like spilling constants and other
weirdnesses that only happen under register pressure. s390 has similar
issues in the "isolation" tests. The package builds/tests fine with
-O1. If the problems persist, I'll disable -O2 in postgresql-9.4's
debian/rules, but I'd prefer the compiler getting fixed :)

postgresql-9.3 needs to be removed from testing anyway as we are
moving to postgresql-9.4. If it helps with the perl transition, you
can remove it from testing now or as soon as the rdeps have
transitioned to 9.4. The current status is:

pgsql-asn1oid: RC bug with patch filed, waiting for maintainer
pg-reorg: Needs porting upstream, could just be removed from testing
  if it remains the only blocker
pgrouting: Waiting for maintainer, though I've heard he's working on
  it, so should happen soonish
postgis: Uploaded to sid, waiting for testing transition
(postgresql-pljava: is sid-only atm anyway)

I don't intend to do any further postgresql-9.3 uploads to sid.
