Looks like you are trying to initialize your database, not 
run postmaster.  It appears that initdb is not in your
search path.  Depending on how you installed, it should be
in either /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin.  These would need to
be added to the PATH environment variable for the user that
is executing the command.

Another way to locate initdb would be use the find command.
For example, at the / directory type find -iname initdb.
