If you reinstall postgres from source you have to manually rebuild the database directory, user, etc..
You have to follow carefully this instructions:


you will also have to create a new database user and remember to use the database administrator user (eg postgres)

postgres$ initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

to do administration task like starting and stopping the postmaster.
