This message means that getcwd() failed, apparently with an EACCESS
code. Typically what that means is that some parent directory of
the current directory is not readable or searchable by the user you
ran initdb as.
I believe that initdb also invokes getcwd for the directory that
its own executable is in, and possibly for the target data directory,
so you should check the paths leading to those as well.
