PostgreSQL was compiled from source using the following flags:

 After installation, attempting to perform an initdb as user postgres
with the command

$ /var/pgsql/bin/initdb -D /var/pgsql/data

produces the following output:

This database system will be initialized with username "postgres".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.

Creating directory /var/pgsql/data
Creating directory /var/pgsql/data/base
Creating directory /var/pgsql/data/global
Creating directory /var/pgsql/data/pg_xlog
Creating template1 database in /var/pgsql/data/base/1
FATAL 2:  control file context is broken

initdb failed.
