Looking at the code, this message is emitted if attempting to stat() the
file fails, regardless of what the actual errno is. So I'm wondering
about permissions problems, specifically inability to search one of the
directories on the path.
We should adjust initdb to report the actual kernel errno value, instead
of presuming that it's "file not found".
