Which "binaries" did you install, and from what source? RedHat
currently uses a cheat to install perl (and a few other kinds of
things) in that they stuff *all* generated code into the "version
neutral" perl library area. So something built for perl-5.004x, as
were rpms posted at postgresql.org, will have been built and linked
for that version, but perl doesn't know that.
Anyway, I'm guessing that if you pick up the src.rpm for Postgres, and
build it on your system, it will start working.
I'm sure that there is a better way, like
rpm --rebuild postgresql-6.5.1-src.rpm
but I haven't actually tried running that way since I've been building
the rpms. I do know that something like
rpm -ivv postgresql-6.5.1-src.rpm
rpm -ba postgresql-6.5.1.spec
will get you new rpms for your platform, built against your tools.
