This pg_ctlcluster program seems to be Debian-specific, so please report
issues with it to the Debian team. (I don't even know what it's
supposed to do.)
Anyway, with password authentication there's no way to connect without a
password. I don't think there's a way around that. You could set the
authentication to ident for the specific database and user that
pg_ctlcluster is using; or you could set a .pgpass file.
