Have you edited /etc/init.d/postgres to point prefix at /var/lib/pgsql
(and updated any other settings that need to be changed for the new
server; PGDATA maybe)?  I suspect it is still starting the old
installation in /usr/local/...

serverlog is the default log file for postgresql and is in the data dir
(by default, along with pg_hba.conf, pg_ident.conf, postgresql.conf and
so on; see PGLOG in /etc/init.d/postgresql to find out what is happening
with logs on your installation).  Where did
*your* /etc/init.d/postgresql file come from?
