Yes - install postgres from scratch. I had problems with several
packages and with the fink version (it conflicted with another CMS I
use, Bricolage). I built postgres on my mac using pointers from David
Wheeler's (not the gravitational physicist, but the perl coder) pages
for Bricolage. When I switched back to Zope, I used that same install
for development. I also installed the psycopg database adaptor (which
rocks) on my mac.
Here's apple's doc on it:

and here's what I did to install psycopg on mac os x:
Hope that helps!
