dlb(at)localhost:~$ apt-cache policy postgresql-8.0
  Installed: 8.0.3-5
  Candidate: 8.0.3-5
  Version Table:
 *** 8.0.3-5 0
         90 sid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

There is a bug report at (also in the new
postgresql-common package) relating to the location of the socket.  I'd
seen this report before posting my original message, but things didn't
click until I read your reply.  Anyway, there was a suggestion by
someone that unix_socket_directory needed to be specified.

I do not know now where where the Debian 7.4 socket was located, as I
had no need to look into that.

From some of the info that came with the package, the structure of the
postgresql packaging system has been changed quite a bit.
