Hey mike ;)
I know I /have/ the source. But I find it rather strange that I have to
/hack/ the source to have it start.
I'm thankful for the postgresql people to protect me from damaging my
databases while i'm /not aware/ of the problem, but in this situation it
almost feels windows-like (no offence :P) since there is NO way to have
it start now, even if i really really really really really want it to.
I hope pgsql-devel people are reading, and willing to implement a system
like apt has when you want to remove something important like libc6:

btw, postgresql in Debian is built with doogies build system *shiver*
