No offence, but I would suppose you're a Unix newby, though perhaps
an old hand at MacOS. This means that the initdb command isn't
stored anyplace the shell (command line interpreter) is looking for
it. Those places include /usr/local/bin, and a bunch of standard
system directories. So where is it?
That depends on how you installed postgres. If you
compiled/installed it yourself then the --prefix=<dir> configure
option would have determined that. (It defaults to /usr/local should
that should have been OK.) If you used some pre-built package then
the package description should have told you.
Once you find the location then you can add a line to your ~/.cshrc
file like: "setenv PATH $PATH:<location>" start a new terminal
window and you're all set.
