Just for completeness, here is the output from "*bucardo at localhost$ bucardo
install -h localhost --pid-dir /var/run/bucardo --dbuser bucardo --dbname
bucardo*", run after the creation of a local linux *bucardo* user, a
database called *bucardo* and a postgres user also called *bucardo* with
SUPERUSER privileges.


*This will install the bucardo database into an existing Postgres
cluster.Postgres must have been compiled with Perl support,and you must
connect as a superuserCurrent connection settings:1. Host:
localhost2. Port:           54323. User:           bucardo4. Database:
  bucardo5. PID directory:  /var/run/bucardoEnter a number to change it, P
to proceed, or Q to quit: PPassword for user bucardo: Password for user
bucardo: Attempting to create and populate the bucardo database and
schemaPassword for user bucardo: Database creation is completeDBI
connect('dbname=bucardo;host=localhost;port=5432','bucardo',...) failed:
fe_sendauth: no password supplied at /usr/local/bin/bucardo line 9167.*

In my pg_hba.conf:

*local     all     bucardo     peer*

Again, thanks
