pgAdmin won't look in that directory at all by default, so I can only 
assume the Kubuntu packager has modified the pgAdmin build system in 
some way - you may need to speak to him/her...

However, the message is telling you that it's looking for pg_config from 
PostgreSQL 8.1 in /usr/lib/postgresql/8.1 - if that program is not on 
your system then either the package you installed is broken, or it 
wasn't actually PostgreSQL 8.1. If it is on your system but elsewhere, 
then try using --with-pgsql=/path/to/dir/that/pg_config/is/in/

Regards, Dave.
