Does "which psql" say that you're using the psql in
It sounds to me a bit like you have two sets of PG programs with
different default port numbers compiled into them. Which port is
the server actually listening on?

Debian is a rather nasty environment for custom-built PG installations,
because they have their own ideas of where to put the PG programs
and what port numbers they should run on. I'm thinking you are
connecting to a Debian-supplied postmaster on a non-standard port,
and not to your own installation at all.
