OSX, eh?  Have you tried my Postgres + PostGIS package?  If you had  
problems with that, I can help you get it going.  (And I'd just like  
to know, if there is something I need to fix.)

There is only one required new user for the system - an unprivileged  
user much like www and postfix, needed to run Postgres - and that is  
created during installation.  (But you may need to delete previously  
created postgres users first or you may have problems, as I  
discovered recently.)
