Nope. If you have enough to recompile the tarball, you just (as root):
rpm --rebuild postgresql-x.y.z-rPGDG.src.rpm
Make a dump of the old database at this point, if upgrading...
cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 (or whichever architecture you have)
rpm -Uvh whichever-rpms-you-want.i386.rpm
It's easier -- much easier -- to rebuild from source via RPM than to build
and hand install from tarball, if you don't need too custom of a setup.
