Thank you! I found in usr/local/pgsql/data. I deleted  
the whole pgsql directory and installed postgres again using the  
following commands:

	sudo make install
	sudo mkdir /usr/local/pgsql/data
	sudo chown postgres /usr/local/pgsql/data
	su postgres
	/usr/local/pgsql/bin/initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

When I then try to start the PosrgreSQL-server via

	/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postgres -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

the terminal gets "stuck" (i.e. no prompt appears ) after six lines  
of output:

LOG:  database system was shut down at 2007-07-25 09:38:00 CEST
LOG:  checkpoint record is at 0/42C258
LOG:  redo record is at 0/42C258; undo record is at 0/0; shutdown TRUE
LOG:  next transaction ID: 0/593; next OID: 10820
LOG:  next MultiXactId: 1; next MultiXactOffset: 0
LOG:  database system is ready

There is no explicit error message. What can be wrong?
What directory do I have to cd to in order to execute "/usr/local/ 
pgsql/bin/postgres -D /usr/local/pgsql/data"?
Did I omit an important step?

Thanks for your ideas!
