Hi, Rod:

The hostname is specified in build.xml. It is in peroperty 
jdbc-connect in target postgresql. But it always be set as localhost and 
it works. So I think the reseason is how do you start the psql. If you 
directly run postmaster you should add -i flag in command line. If you run 
it from script file, you should edit it and add -i flag there (as the 
error message indicates).

Hope this is helpful.
