Yeah, I caught the first stupid mistake.  What happened was I was logged in
as postgres and su'ed to root to remove the previous RPM of postgres 6.5.  I
then did the compiling, etc.  I exited and went back to the postgres user.
Well, removing the RPM removed the user that the RPM made so the owner of
/home/postgres became uid 26 as opposed to postgres which was what I was
technically logged in as.  And since I was in the home directory trying to
dump the logfile, permission was denied.

As for the later, yeah, I went by the short instructions and and the
ldconfig step was skipped.  I guess I tried to get out of it too easy. :)
