There's no software linked with libpq.so.4 on standard RHEL 4. They
are all built on libpq.so.3.
IMHO, your problem is that it seems to the RPM database that compat 4
is newer than compat. I think we should have 2 different packages with
different names compat-3 and compat-4.

But you only need the compat package with libpq.so.3 to install 8.1
and 8.2 on RHEL 4.
