Actually the "default" is /usr/local/pgsql , which means it still could
be overwritten ;)

Anyway, we are talking about an issue which should never ever happen, if
docs were read. I announced -devel RPMs lots of times, and each one
included a notice for dump/reload action.

BTW, I was intending to introduce multiple version installation with
RPMs with 8.4, but it is already pushed to 8.5.
