Build with LZ4 compression support.

Build with Zstandard compression support.

as I see now:

imho : just add a --with-lz4 --with-zstd ( and install the liblz4-dev libzstd-dev it should work with pg14 with a warning …

[neondb] # SET default_toast_compression=lz4;
ERROR:  22023: invalid value for parameter "default_toast_compression": "lz4"
HINT:  Available values: pglz.

[neondb] # select version();
 PostgreSQL 15.2 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (Debian 10.2.1-6) 10.2.1 20210110, 64-bit
