The default start would read the config file from its predefined
location, set by ./configure.  No command line options would be
necessary for the postmaster to run, though they could be provided.

The config file should contain the pgdata location; this and any other
parameter should be overridden if a different location is specified by a
command-line option. I think the config should be able to contain all
information that can be specified on the command line (except, of
course, the location of the configuration file.)
