I guess what you mean is to remove the "role" postgres so that you can 
redefine it as a normal user and not remove the binaries that are 
installed with Postgres as they can be overridden by having right PATH 

Its easy... Modify /etc/user_attr and remove type=role from the postgres 
line and modify /etc/passwd to set a home path and change default shell 
to /bin/sh or /bin/bash and set password for it.. and now you have a 
normal user..
Is this what you are trying to do?
