So did initdb execute without errors after you changed the home directory?

It looks like your postgresql.conf file is pointing Postgres to log to a
directory / file that the Postgres user doesn't have permission to write to.

acorn$ sudo su postgres -c 'pg_ctl start -l logfile -D
/Library/PostgreSQL8/data'
Password:
sh: line 1: logfile: Permission denied
server starting

acorn$ postgres
postgres cannot access the server configuration file
"/Library/PostgreSQL8/data:/postgresql.conf": No such file
or directory

Surely initdb should have created the configure file?
