That is a very bad idea from a security standpoint, which is why
PostgreSQL doesn't allow it.  You would have to modify the source
code and make your own build to do it; but that seems like a lot of
trouble to go through just to make your system less secure.
 
Are you having some problem with the recommended installation
procedure?
