Thanks again for the replies.  I think Regina Obe is
getting to the bottom of my problem.  When I run:

select * from pg_settings where name= 'hba_file'

I get no records returned.

Now, I have 'pg_hba.conf' in /etc/postgresql/ and a
symbolic link to this file in /var/lib/postgres/data/
(this is my $PGDATA directory).   I'm starting the
postmaster with:

'/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -i -D
/usr/local/pgsql/data >logfile 2>&1 &'

So, why isn't it reading pg_hba.conf?
