So I've installed it the way you detail below before, and more
recently the way I'll mention...
You can install via macports (assuming you have Macports & XCode Tools
installed already), with no restart needed:
$ sudo port install postgresql83 postgresql83-server
Then follow the couple steps that follow to add a login item if you
want, and also add '/opt/local/lib/postgresql82/bin' to your path. In
more user-friendly steps: http://shifteleven.com/articles/2008/03/21/installing-postgresql-on-leopard-using-macports
(ignore the Ruby stuff). I used the +python variant of postgresql83,
but I'm not sure if you actually need it.
If you add Postgres to your path, then you don't need to edit the
setup.cfg file before running setup.py. I happen to already live in
Terminal and am set to use macports, so these steps were easier for
me - just my 2 cents.
Thanks Can for putting these up. We'll be making them a part of the
official setup directions :)
