Hmm ... Apple's default for SHMMAX is definitely penurious, but it's not
so small that PG shouldn't be able to start at all.  What do you get
	sysctl -a | grep shm
?  If it shows shmmax as at least 4 million (as I expect), maybe there's
something else already eating shmem --- try also
	sudo ipcs -a
Also, which OSX release is this again?
