postgres command not found

I'm new to macports and I just installed postgresql 8.3.3 with the command sudo port install postgresql83 and when I try to start the server with postgres -D /usr/local/pgsql/data I get a postgres command not found. Is there a post installation procedure I need to follow before starting the server?

If you want to run a postgresql server, you need to also install the postgresql83-server port, which will install a launchd item, add the necessary user for the daemon, and should inform you of any further steps you need to take to get things running.
