Problem Description:
--------------------
Followed the INSTALL doc word for word. Section 19 says to run initdb, I get the following:
initdb: using /usr/local/pgsql/lib/local1_template1.bki.source as input to create the template database.
initdb: using /usr/local/pgsql/lib/global1.bki.source as input to create the global classes.
initdb: using /usr/local/pgsql/lib/pg_hba.conf.sample as the host-based authentication control file.

We are initializing the database system with username postgres (uid=531).
This user will own all the files and must also own the server process.
