Its the default gentoo-init-script, but I checked it whether it could do 
weird things. Anyway, this is the stop-code:

stop() {
         ebegin "Stopping PostgreSQL"
         su - $PGUSER -c "/usr/bin/pg_ctl stop -D '$PGDATA' -s -m fast"
         eend $?

start and restart are similarily simple.
ebegin and eend are afaik simple macro's to pretty print to the console.

Best regards,
