I built and executed a Postgres from source during a code sprint for 
the Postgres project, however it was tricky.  I recall I executed many 
steps as the linux postgres user. 

you can definetly get 24 hour support on building and running postgres 
from source on freenode IRC #postgresql
I use Firefox Chatzilla plugin.. it is built into SeaMonkey if you want 
to have a really simple way to get Chatzilla.. otherwise install the 
Chatzill extension, restart Firefox, open Chatzilla from Tools menu, 
click on Freenode

       Reseting the conf file also gives the same output. 

The restored configuration file is as http://pastebin.com/HA5ujeXT

Also, in which file the debugging prints need to be inserted? adding 
prints in postgis/sp_gist.c are not working. DO they need to be 
inserted in postgis.sql.in file?

See if there are other relative paths, paste new config again. 
Reset the config to default as last resort. 

Try also another path if this one (valgrind) is too hard for you:
add debugging prints into the code to see which parts of the code
are executed and which not. 

Try more things, try harder.
