I did not start this thread to make PostgreSQL FHS compatible, someone else brought that up.

As I said somewhere else, I'm an old fashioned UNIX guy, capability without policy. The patch that I submitted for 7.3.2 will allow the user to configure PostgreSQL with a configuration file outside the $PGDATA directory. That's all I care about. If someone wants to get on the FHS bandwagon, that's fine. PostgreSQL should allow that ability but should not require it.
