I'm not sure if there is one. However, usually you su to the postgres
user which will let you in without a password. There you use
"createuser" to make a user for yourself.
Note, it really depends how the distributor has set the system up.
Allowing the "postgres" user password-less access is common because it
allows cronjobs as user "postgres" (backups for example) to run without
any extra configuration.
