 This is still an issue. The home directory of the postgres user is based
 on the name of the first postgresql*-server port the user (or build
 server!) installed. For example on my system I don't have the
 postgresql92-server port installed anymore, but I still have:

 $ dscl . -read /Users/postgres NFSHomeDirectory
 NFSHomeDirectory: /opt/local/var/db/postgresql92
