      Description

      bin/bootstrap_system.sh relaxes the default PostgreSQL security rules to allow password-less operations during data load. It uses sed to manipulate the contents of the pg_hba.conf file, see the linesĀ https://github.com/apache/impala/blob/master/bin/bootstrap_system.sh#L310

      Unfortunately the sed patterns are too much system-dependent, which caused a setup failure when a CentOS 7 test platform was set up with PostgreSQL 9.2: the expected default content of pg_hba.conf did not match the script.

      This failure broke the build in the dataload phase with the symptom:

      23:36:49 dropdb: could not connect to database template1: FATAL:  Peer authentication failed for user "hiveuser"
      23:36:49 createdb: could not connect to database template1: FATAL:  Peer authentication failed for user "hiveuser" 

      This blocks automatic deployment of an Impala build on such a platform.
