This has a trivial workaround - just set PGHOST for pg_ctl:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] inst.codfix.5705]$ PGHOST=/home/andrew/pgl/inst.codfix.5705 bin/pg_ctl -D data/ -l logfile -w start

That would be fine for a particular installation, but isn't really
suitable for a startup script shipped with a linux distribution.  Sure,
a /bin/sh-based postgresql.conf parser could do the trick... but I just
don't feel like writing one. :-)

I think it's broken for a distro to ship with config files setting a socket dir other than the one they compile in.

If you don't like /tmp compile in something else. The you don't need to parse anything.
