	The pgport problem, I *think*, is the one that was configure
related, where the port is set wrong by default.

	Try this:

Index: pgsql/src/configure
RCS file: /usr/local/cvsroot/pgsql/src/configure,v
retrieving revision 1.132
retrieving revision 1.134
diff -r1.132 -r1.134
< #define DEF_PGPORT "${DEF_PGPORT}"
> #define DEF_PGPORT "${withval}"
