[CalendarServer-users] Is xattr still needed when using Postgres?

xattr support would only be needed for the ability to upgrade / import from previous versions; these days we use Postgres instead of a file-based store, so no need for extended attributes once everything is running a modern version (and all data has been upgraded / imported).

If you don't need to upgrade from an ancient version, you can probably just comment out the appropriate bits in support/build.sh:
