I was quite puzzled by the following error

$ initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/base... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/global... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_xlog... ok

not found
initializing pg_shadow... FATAL:  could not open file
bal/1262": No such file or directory

initdb: failed
initdb: removing data directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data"

At some point I realized that cat was missing. I installed the
textutils and then initdb worked.
setup.exe didn't select textutils by default, maybe a dependency
could be set up that if the postgres package is selected, textutils
also get selected.
