pg_ctl seems to want to be told where "data" is:

pg_ctl stop [-W] [-s] [-D datadir] 

I've been scattering data across spindles and mount points.  The 
doc speaks to this in the singular:

-D datadir

    Specifies the file system location of the database files. 
    If this is omitted, the environment variable PGDATA is used. 

Do I need to tell pg_ctl where all the data is or does it figure it out
internally?
