     Some Googling has left me at this page:
     It seems that, perhaps, the test isn't consistently calling the same psql? 
There is a system-provided one, but I told ./configure to use the one from 
MacPorts (env PG_CONFIG). The errors we're seeing were remedied by symlinking 
the non-system pgsql "into place". That's not something I'm comfortable doing 
to a user's system, as they would then rely on my installers for updates to it.

I don't think that link is talking about the same problem. 
It should not matter which binary you use to start the postgres server (unless 
it's broken 
of course).  It also should not matter if there is currently another server 
running.  That's
why we pass it the -k flag.

The postgres program should be trying to create a socket at 
 - For some reason it's not able to do so.  Check that the directory exists,
and other possible problems like that.   Also, Is there a equivalent of Syslogd 
in Mac?
That might give some clues.
