What port did you install exactly?  Installing one of the
postgresql[XX]-client ports will end you up with all of the manpages,
but none of the commands that you would only need if there was a
server installed, such as initdb, postgres, postmaster and so on and
so forth.

My guess is you need to install the corrosponding
postgresql[XX]-server to match the client you already have installed.
