OK, do your clean install, then
1) go into backend/utils/adt and edit the Makefile to add the flag
"-DDATEDEBUG" to the CFLAGS line.
2) do a "make clean" from that directory
3) go back to src/ and do a "make install"
4) run the backend from a terminal window.
5) From another window fire up psql, and try
  select '1 min'::timespan;

and
6) post the output from both windows.

Good luck :)
