Subject: specifics of PostgreSQL superuser account

I set up the PostgreSQL superuser account using vipw as I do for most

  postgres:*:5555:5555::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/pgsql/data:/sbin/nologin

However, I get the warning:
  # su - postgres
  This account is currently not available.

Does this user have to have a shell?  If so, which shell is best?

Is there a NetBSD-specific PostgreSQL manual or document page?
