You need to run initdb which will generate those files with default content.

I'm not sure where CentOS / RedHat puts them by default (I compile from
source) but at a guess:
/usr/local/postgres/bin/initdb -D /path/to/database/files/ databasename

Run that as the postgres user.
/path/to/database/files/ is where you want to put the files. It does not
need to exist already as initdb will create it. Depends how CentOS / RedHat
have setup the package, but it would possible default to
/usr/local/postgres/data/ I think.
