Someone else reported this on 6.5-2 (bug#41006). However,
/etc/postgresql/postmaster.init is a conffile of the postgresql package and
is definitely in the package:
# dpkg -S /etc/postgresql/postmaster.init
Therefore, I suggest you unpack it again.
If that still does not work:
does /etc/postgresql exist?
take the .deb package apart and check whether the file is in data.tar.gz (how
could it not be?)
add `set -x' to the postinst script and run `dpkg --configure postgresql' -
perhaps the trace will reveal what is happening.
