This naming convention is broken.  Fix it by putting the platform info
into the path instead, perhaps
	
/local/store/bbking/.postgresql/ver-8.0.1/opt/postgresql/386linuxlibc63/bin/postgres

The symlink following code is necessary to support relocatable
installations, and we aren't going to change it.
