Do you mean 2.4, not 10?

The history is here:


So, here is the scenario:

* There is a PostGIS 2.3 and Postgres 9.6 user, who want to upgrade to Postgres
10, and PostGIS 2.4.

* To perform pg_upgrade, they need 2.3 so file as well in 2.4 installation (see
bug report)

* We fail here, as 2.3 cannot be built against v10.
