Nothing special.

   "bin/initdb" -U buildfarm --locale=$locale data-$locale
   "bin/pg_ctl" -D data-$locale -l logfile -w start

We have wide control over what's done, just let me know what's wanted. For example, it would be pretty simple to make it use a non-standard socket directory and turn tcp connections off on Unix, or to set up password auth for that matter, assuming we already have a strong password.

I generally assume that people aren't running buildfarm animals on general purpose multi-user machines, but it might be as well to take precautions.
