To followup: operator error. That last sentence above wasn't true.
The user (me) doing the pg_dump had createdb privilege, but the
owner of the database being dumped did not. After granting *that*
user createdb privilege, the restore went fine.
Sorry for the wasted bandwidth, maybe this will help someone
