Thanks. Disabling SELinux for postgresql allowed service startup.
Although I feel a bit creepy about disabling security in order to get
something working. Kind of like leaving one particular door unlocked so
the janitor can get in...

I jacked around with the file security contexts with no luck. I hold
onto the hope that this can be made to work: SELinux and postgresql
living in harmony. Does anyone have a pointer to a crash course in
configuring SELinux security contexts?
