Yes, it seems to be a configuration problem. I rebuilt PostgreSQL 7.0.2
from sources (postgresql.tar.gz), installed it and it works just fine.
Unfortunately, I don't even know how to start to make binary RPMs, so I
can't be of much help here. I'd love to help, but I'm afraid I will need
some coaching; if anybody could give me a couple of pointers, I can
study and give it a try.

Best regards,
Matías.
