Yes there are defines which turn off parts of the build and or change dependencies. For example the following sets dependencies for Red Hat 8 (build8x) and turns off python support

rpmbuild --rebuild --define 'build8x 1' --define 'python 0' postgresql-7.4.2-1PGDG.src.rpm 

I don't know what Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 is equivalent to with regards to desktop versions so can't help you with choosing a correct define.
Have a look at the end of the rpm build script for a list of available defines.

  I have endeavored to do so however, I get these errors....  Is there a way to change the build script(s) to ignore this tcl library requirement?

  error: failed build dependencies:
          tcl-devel is needed by postgresql-7.4.2-1PGDG

    Get a more recent SRPM and do "rpmbuild --rebuild". I haven't tried it
    but I know of no reason it wouldn't work.
