[CentOS] PostgreSQL 8.1 on CentOS4

I have discovered that the default init script distributed with 
pgsql v8.1 sets the listening port to 5432 but does not enable 
tcp/ip connections.  One must add the -i switch to the invocation 
line in the script.  I am not sure if this is an oversight or 
whether there is another way to tell postmaster to start with 
tcp/ip listening enabled that I am unaware of.  However, I thought 
that this information might be of interest to anyone else running a 
non-distro version of pgsql.
