Please use our *yum repository*, which will install a compat package
which will satisfy libpq.so.4 dependency.

... or it is here:

http://yum.pgsqlrpms.org/8.3/redhat/rhel-5-i386/compat-postgresql-libs-4-1PGDG.rhel5.i686.rpm

Please find a good howto here:

http://www.westnet.com/~gsmith/content/postgresql/pgrpm.htm

As recommended here, you will need to replace current postgresql-libs
with the compat package, then install 8.3.7 packages. 

However,  as I wrote above, please use yum repository, which will
resolve dependency issues automagically. Howto is here:

http://yum.pgsqlrpms.org/howtoyum.ph
