There must be an RPM containing the contribs.
Especially, if you already installed the base system by RPM, there MUST 
be an additional RPM with the contribs.

Let's see:

http://rpmfind.net
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=postgresql-contrib&submit=Search+...

Hm, I can only find 7.2 RPMs
If your installed version is 7.2, then you _can't_ install connectby 
(tablefunc) at all, since it is only supported in >=7.3

Ok, this is what I got from google:
http://www.google.de/search?q=cache:H2gKP4LRNNcJ:rpmfind.rediris.es/rpm2html/postgresql-contrib.html+mandrake+9.1+postgresql-contrib+7.3+rpm&hl=de&ie=UTF-8

Seems like a more up to date rpmfind:

So _maybe_ this package fits your needs:
ftp://ftp.rediris.es/sites/carroll.cac.psu.edu/mandrake/9.1/i586/Mandrake/RPMS/postgresql-contrib-7.3.2-5mdk.i586.rpm

I suggest testing the package on a testing machine.
