Hmmm.

Install postgresql-devel.  Late 7.1.2 RPMs moved libpq.so (the symlink) to 
the devel subpackage.  The actual libpq shared object is named libpq.so.2.1, 
and the others are all symlinks to it.

The program in question should be linked against libpq.so.2.1, not plain 
libpq.so.  However, installation of the -devel package provides the symlink.

Thanks to Trond, I now understand _why_ libpq.so (the symlink, not the actual 
shared object) belongs in the -devel subpackage -- but the other packages in 
question apparently are not following the 'normal' rules......

Or you can symlink /usr/lib/libpq.so to /usr/lib/libpq.so.2
