Hmm. If the server.log file is not getting created, then the postmaster
has never had a chance to start, because that file would be opened
before the postmaster is exec'd from su.
Two thoughts: (a) does user postgres have write permission on the
directory /usr/local/pgsql/logs? (b) are you sure that your standard
runlevel is one of 2,3,4,5? (see the init line in inittab)
