The above indicates the geteuid() is failing, see below for potentially
why...

The above indicates that your /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) is
not set up correctly.  Do you have these files and are they correct?  If
not, then perform the following:

    $ mkpasswd -l >/etc/passwd
    $ mkgroup -l >/etc/group

Does initdb work now?
