...And since I haven't been killed in the rush I may as well tell the 
list that I have managed to resolve the issue...

1) It seems, in my case, to relate to the permissions associated with 
the folder /usr/local/pgsql/data (ie my <data directory>)

2) sudo chown postgres <data directory>

3) sudo chgrp postgres <data directory>

Finally, the postgresql.conf has to be edited for the appropriate IP 
port and host settings...
