My counter-argument to that would be that the SuSE distribution's
version of PostgreSQL is so out-of-date that we don't install it.  It
also doesn't enable debug info or integer date times.  So we switched
to build from source before we actually got as far as loading any
data.  I'm inclined to recommend the same to others.

Sounds good to me; although, now that there is a full LSB version, I
should probably withdraw my meager suggested patch to the existing
linux script, eh?  (If they're using an LSB conforming implementation,
they'll want the linux-lsb script, and if they're not, the suggested
patch has no point, I think.)  Unless someone thinks otherwise, I'll
drop that patch to the linux script from the CF page.  Any thoughts on
what that script needs, if anything?
