Not without a lot more information.  What PG version are you using?
On what platform?  How did you build or acquire the executables?
Also, try
	initdb [same args as before plus] -d  2>initdb.out
which will produce extremely voluminous debugging output in initdb.out.
We don't want to see the whole thing, but the last dozen or two lines
might yield a clue.
