I would suggest reinstalling Postgres. You are missing a lot of files that
need to be there. 

[root(at)localhost data]# ls -l
total 44
drwx------   10 postgres postgres     4096 Jan 14 17:45 base
drwx------    2 postgres postgres     4096 Jan 24 12:10 global
drwx------    2 postgres postgres     4096 Jan  6 17:32 pg_clog
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres     2510 Jan  6 17:48 pg_hba.conf
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres     1441 Jan  6 17:32 pg_ident.conf
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres        4 Jan  6 17:32 PG_VERSION
drwx------    2 postgres postgres     4096 Jan 21 10:31 pg_xlog
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres     5236 Jan 23 22:31 postgresql.conf
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres       48 Jan 24 12:09 postmaster.opts
-rw-------    1 postgres postgres       45 Jan 24 12:09 postmaster.pid

You probably need to run initdb first (as user postgres).
