The PostgreSQL package maintainers are reorganizing things, and this is the new way to install postgresql, especially version 8.3 and future versions.
The new packages are:
They're currently masked (but not hard-masked), so you'll have to unmask them in /etc/portage/package.keywords.
If you currently have dev-db/libpq and dev-db/postgresql installed, you should probably remove them (after backing up the databases).
After that, do:
emerge -av dev-db/postgresql-server
These new packages are slotted, so you can have multiple versions coexisting on the same system.
E.g. for PostgreSQL 8.3, the startup script is /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 and the data is in /var/lib/postgresql/8.3 by default.
The first time you should probably do:
emerge -a --config postgresql-server
to set up the initial database.
Then as usual, start it with:
and set it to start automatically with:
rc-update add postgresql-8.3 default
For more configuration and maintenance details, see the old install page.
