Red Hat decided not to ship the postgresql-test subpackage.  Rebuilding from 
the source RPM with the line:
rpm --rebuild --define 'test 1' postgresql.src.rpm
will build the whole shooting match over.

That was Red Hat's decision, not mine.  You can of course grab the PGDG binary 
RPM's from ftp.postgresql.org -- although they are built for Red Hat 7.3, not 
7.2.

Note also that several tests will fail in their default state when run as 
stated.  You will need to investigate the regress.diff in order to determine 
why -- locale setting is the biggest offender on 7.2.  A failing regression 
test doesn't necessarily indicate a broken installation -- it indicates a 
difference in what was expected to be output by the test queries and the 
actual output of the test queries.
