This config file is not right (Note: PGENGINE=/usr/bin)

Try staring up by hand as per the docs, then try using the startup
script that comes with postgresql instead of your existing script (which
looks to have been modified by whoever packaged the previous version of
postgresql; see postgresql-8.4.1/contrib/start-scripts/linux).  Modify
as needed and try starting again.

Have you checked you can do an upgrade from 8.3.1 - 8.3.7 without a
dump?  Quite possibly, but I'm not sure.
