There is a bug report at bugs.debian.org/postgresql-8.0 (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.
