I trashed it (careful to move my database files first of course) and
recreated it

$ cd /usr/local/var/lib
$ sudo mkdir couchdb
$ sudo chown -R couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb

Then same as before:

$ login couchdb
No home directory  /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb!

Perhaps I need to try trashing something higher up the structure… make
install creates these directories as needed right? Everything inside
/usr/local/ appears to be couchdb related. Should I try trashing the
lot for a clean slate?
