Postgresql HOWTO?

Today I got some time to actually work on some DF related things at home.  I 
wanted to install Gallery [0] so I could share some pics to family members (the 
other reason was that my DF box ran Gallery back in the pre-1.2 days).  
Happily, I found Gallery isn't in pkgsrc.  The source install consists of a 
bunch of php files, so I was fine with that.

During the installation process, Gallery asks for a database connection.  
Thinking I had PostgreSQL [1] installed, I tried to run it against that.  To my 
surprise I discovered that this box only had the client, not the server, 
installed.  I completed a source install of /usr/pkgsrc/postgresql80-server and 
tried to run it.

At this point, I discovered that pkgsrc does not install *any* PostgreSQL 
startup files.  I have a bunch of sample config files in /usr/pkg/share/
postgresql, but nothing that looks like a startup.  I'm also assuming that the 
config files are supposed to go in /usr/pkg/etc/postgresql.

My question is whether anyone out there has a PostgreSQL (8.0) HOWTO?  I tried 
the combinations "pkgsrc postgresql howto" and "netbsd postgresql howto" on 
Google [2] but neither returned anything remotely useful.  Heck, at this point 
I'd appreciate just some general pointers/clarifications.

As many of you know, I'm quite content writing a HOWTO (and slaving through the 
labor of what works and what doesn't) from scratch.  I'm just trying to figure 
out far "scratch" actually is.
