I had noticed in a previous post the following information:

I'm running into the same error message & I'm not sure how I got my client
and server out of sync.
I did an install of 7.0.3 on a RedHat Linux 6.2 box that has had all
previous versions of postgreSQL removed.
When I configured it, I did ./configure --with-perl --with-odbc
--enable-syslog --enable-debug --enable-cassert . Since my database will
not need any multibyte characters, I specifically did not use
--enable-multibyte. My regression test went great, and after I edited the
system's sysctl.conf to set the shmall and shmmax, postmaster started up
like a trooper. I then did the quickie test of
postgres=>SELECT datetime 'now';
When I did the create and the destroy, I got the "Unrecognized variable
client_encoding" notice, so obviously I'm out of sync. The question is how
did I get that way?
I also tried recompiling with the multibyte enabled. This time I got an
error along the lines of : multibyte is not enabled.
Your installation may not have been successful.
