Solved finally by article:-

http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-admin/2002-05/msg00219.php

So I inserted:

struct ucred {
        unsigned int   pid;
        unsigned int   uid;
        unsigned int   gid;
};


into the file:-

/usr/local/src/postgresql-7.2.1/src/include/libpq/hba.h

and gmake worked.

Unlike the previous article writer my config.log did not have any of the 
information that he had.

So I had to just try and see... it worked.

I have readhat 5.1 upgraded to 5.2 with kernel 2.2.18
