FYI, I did not get as far as people might have thought:

1. Using MacPorts, while I did already install GNUmed client's dependencies 
(which themselves depended on postgresql), output from the command

        port installed

includes only postgresql84 @ (active). Not installed us the server port, 
whose name is postgresql84-server (8.4.4), so that would have to be installed 

2. I did note, in the console output during the above, a warning from the 
postgres installation routine which suggested I report to postgres (but which I 
did not yet do)... Karsten suggested that the warning should have no impact on 
the client, but I did not take it as assurance that a local MacPorts postgres 
would function correctly (but maybe it would) ...

3. Sebastian had anyway suggested Enterprisedb so I figured I would give it a 
try, accepting the default install directory /Library/PostgreSQL/8.4 but 
whether or not it was the fault of edb or Snow Leopard is did not work out :-(

4. I did not yet download or run the GNUmed server package, so Karsten cannot 
yet infer that postgres will run on Mac with minimum defaults (but maybe it 

5. I had been poking around my own machine's postgres, to satisfy myself I 
could get it ready for GNUmed and running, and found that I had *two* copies of 


the second being left over from some effort from a year ago (which I since 
deleted) and maybe I will delete what edb installed, too
