Every time I look at MacPorts, I end up searching for an alternative.  
With a little effort, I got the package from Marc Liyanage working on  
Leopard: http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/postgresql/

Using dscl on the command line, I was able to create a system user for  
PostgreSQL just like the one for MySQL.
