IIRC, step 5 is no longer needed for 7.1beta5.  Remember that Kevin's howto
is for 7.0.3 not 7.1.  Hence, it is a tad out of date at this point.

Your /usr/local/pgsql/data is left over from your 7.0.3 installation.
What I did was just rename data to data-7.0.3:

    mv /usr/local/pgsql/data /usr/local/pgsql/data-7.0.3

After completing the above, retry the initdb -- it should work this time.
