With 'host = localhost' (but I insist that Unix socket support is
necessary to me), you need an ident server (not with Unix sockets
which uses the PEERCREED option of the socket). May be you did not
have one?

% telnet localhost ident
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

% psql -h localhost registry
Welcome to psql 7.4.7, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

% tail /var/log/daemon.log
