This is a hot topic. I would not want to touch this. There are (too ?) many 
options to do this cleanly. One can install PostgreSQL via a nice GUI. There 
are options to do this more Unix-like through fink and darwinports. The later 
two are pretty much software repositories.

For a sever administrator which handles OSX servers they might be a good 
option but for end users which will most likely not get the darwinports stuff 
installed and use the gui installer version that might cause trouble.

On MacOSX it is easy to loose track of where stuff gets installed because most 
stuff doesn't get installed at all but rather dropped some place in a virtual 
disk image.

I installed everything via the gui packages (postgresql, psycopg2) and it 
works just fine.
