The configure script seems to prefer this version of Python over any others,
so you may experience linker problems as described in:
To fix this issue, you may need to either delete the version of Python
shown above, or move it out of the way before brewing PostgreSQL.
Note that a framework Python in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework is
the "MacPython" verison, and not the system-provided version which is in:

If builds of PostgreSQL 9 are failing and you have version 8.x installed,
you may need to remove the previous version first. See:
To build plpython against a specific Python, set PYTHON prior to brewing:
PYTHON=/usr/local/bin/python brew install postgresql
If this is your first install, create a database with:
initdb #{var}/postgres
If this is your first install, automatically load on login with:
mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents
cp #{prefix}/org.postgresql.postgres.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/org.postgresql.postgres.plist
If this is an upgrade and you already have the org.postgresql.postgres.plist loaded:
launchctl unload -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/org.postgresql.postgres.plist
cp #{prefix}/org.postgresql.postgres.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/org.postgresql.postgres.plist
Or start manually with:
pg_ctl -D #{var}/postgres -l #{var}/postgres/server.log start
And stop with:
pg_ctl -D #{var}/postgres stop -s -m fast
Some machines may require provisioning of shared memory:

If you want to install the postgres gem, including ARCHFLAGS is recommended:
env ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install pg
To install gems without sudo, see the Homebrew wiki.
