'sudo find . -name 'libpg*.dylib' -print' at /

Produced only this:

./usr/local/pgsql/lib/libpgtypes.3.1.dylib
./usr/local/pgsql/lib/libpgtypes.3.dylib
./usr/local/pgsql/lib/libpgtypes.dylib

At this point Im mystified!? I think the commands I'm using for  
installation are correct. The bus error I get from creatdb must be  
something to do with my machine?

Any suggestions? This must be doable.

Thanks,
Don
