I had a similar problem before with an older version of PostgreSQL. The problem
was that the rc script was waiting for input from the user. It was waiting for a
password. Depending on how you set up your PostgreSQL, it might ask for a
password on startup.
It might help to post the versions of PostgreSQL and FreeBSD you are using.
