System architecture shouldn't affect crontab. Can you give us the
full output from cron? Also, just for debugging's sake, try putting
it in a script and call the script from cron.

If it still fails, then it might help identify exactly where the
error is. If it doesn't fail, then you can start shrinking it all
back down in to one line again and see where the error comes in.

#!/bin/bash

BACKUP_FILE_GZ='/backup/rms.gz'
BACKUP_FILE='/tmp/rms.sql'

echo "-----------------------------------------------"
echo "Unzipping backup..."
/bin/gunzip -c ${BACKUP_FILE_GZ} > ${BACKUP_FILE}

echo "-----------------------------------------------"
echo "Attempting restore..."
/usr/bin/psql rms < ${BACKUP_FILE}

echo "-----------------------------------------------"
echo "Done"
