...every psql command I issue gets this response:

psql: FATAL:  password authentication failed for user "postgres"

even though there is no password prompt.
This happens for any valid account.
Authentication for the same accounts works fine in pgAdmin.
I don't have any .pgpass files on my system.

The install log mentions errors 1707 and 1709, but I can't find any reference to them.

Was previously using 7.xx.

Thanks for any help.
