Multiple things, possibly. What OS and how did you install PHP and PG?

I'll venture a guess that you somehow installed PHP and/or PG with 
whatever system installer your disro uses (yum? apt?...) and it ended up 
wherever that distro specifies. Then you compiled some stuff from source 
and it ended up in the "normal" locations defined by the source/makefile 
defaults and you have ended up with two or more versions (5.0.4/5.2.8) 
of PHP. You could even end up with Apache seeing one version and PHP 
command-line seeing a different one. Once you sort that out, be sure to 
enable PG in php.ini.

Cheers,
Steve
