You have evidently got a 7.4 version of the initscript. I would suggest
a very very careful recheck of what you did during the installation
process, because this suggests you have got some unholy mixture of 7.3
and 7.4 installations, which is a recipe for disaster. Were you trying
to install 7.3 over a pre-existing 7.4 installation by any chance?
Your best bet may be to save aside the data directory (eg, rename
/var/lib/pgsql out of the way), then completely deinstall every
Postgres file you can find, then reinstall 7.3 from scratch, then
put back the data directory.
