I now have a C implementation of initdb, which successfully runs with 
"make check" on my several linux machines, and compiles on Windows/MinGW 
too (can't run make check on Windows because we haven't got a native 
postgres yet - I'm going to create a small dummy Windows postgres that 
will let me check if this program works there).

There's a little work still to go (see below), but I'd appreciate some 
eyeballs on it to see if I have made any major booboos, or could have 
done things better. What's the best way to proceed? (All told it's about 
2500 lines of C.)



 From the heading comment:

/ *
 * initdb
 * This is a C implementation of the previous shell script for setting up a
 * PostgreSQL cluster location, and should be highly compatible with it.
 * TODO:
 *   - signal handling
 *   - more error checking, partiularly on the file i/o
 *   - check if we need workaround for timing error on win32 rmdir()?
 *   - clean up find_postgres code and return values
 *   - free up used memory? (probably not worth it - if we can't load this
 *     much data into memory how will we ever run postgres anyway?)
