And I'm using 'pgsql' instead of 'postgresql' for historical reasons, as
I must fit the RPMset into an environment where the data has lived for
ages in /var/lib/pgsql, the libraries have lived forever in
/usr/lib/pgsql....  Changing to using 'postgresql' is currently not
planned. I may do so for a future version, however, if the _need_
arises.

After all, even on postgresql.org, the snapshots extract to the 'pgsql'
tree.  Yes, it is inconsistent.

For your application, you can pretty much dictate where everything will
go as there really isn't a preexisting standard layout.  However, to get
the 'postgresql' part of the directory name only requires that you drop
the 'pgsql' from the above -- the 'postgresql' will be automatically
appended.

Glad you're grabbing the bull by the horns, though!
