When installing:
postgresql-libs-9.1.4-1 postgresql-9.1.4-1

I got an error after the installation step

/tmp/alpm_6ATKS7/.INSTALL: line 5: groupadd: command not found
/tmp/alpm_6ATKS7/.INSTALL: line 6: useradd: command not found
passwd: user 'postgres' does not exist
error: command failed to execute correctly

as I'm not afraid to add them myself, this isn't that worrisome. To someone who didn't notice the error or who use archlinux as a webdev box or used an automated installer, this could be quite the burden.
This task depends upon

These binaries are in shadow which is in base group. We assume users have base installed.
