Are you installing on linux, windows or osx?
If you are using linux, you should first check if your distribution
doesn't already include a precompiled postgres version (most major
linux distributions do, altough you might not always get the latest
On windows, you can use the binary installer, which also installes
a precompiled version of postgres.
On OSX there might be premade packages available - or you could use fink
(A port of the debian/linux package manager to osx, just visit fink.sf.net).
If you indeed want to compile postgres yourself, you'll need a
c-compiler, which again should come with your distribution (If not,
I'd change the distribution immediatly ;-) ). You'll also need a few
other packages like "make", and probably a few header files, usually
contained in "-devel" "-dev" packages.
If you want to compile postgres on windows, you'll probably need
VisualC++, on OSX you'll need to install the "Apple Developer Tools",
which include a C-compile.
