It's been a tough week (evidenced by the fact that I posted to the list in 
frustration), and it turns out I wasn't careful enough with my basic checks. 

The problem was exactly what I thought it was originally: the systemd unit file 
for php-fpm must have PrivateTmp=false, or it won't see the Postgres socket.

Bug tracker ticket created: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/31436

All the other failures were because Firefox was remembering the wrong login 
details for phpPgAdmin.  (Schoolboy error!)

Simple fix: create /etc/systemd/system/php-fpm.service with the following 

.include /usr/lib/systemd/system/php-fpm.service


This makes things work for me.  The segfaulting still happens, but isn't a 
blocker for me, as the service works fine despite it.
