Hmmm, 

Did you get the version from the link on the postgresql web site?

If so don't install it.  I can't remember the version number but I believe
it is way behind the current version bundled with postgresql 6.4.2 which
is up around .50 I think.

To get any newer versions you need to go to the postgresql CVS code and I
haven't tried that yet.

Not much help am I? ;-)

Seriously though, is there some reason you need to run the 6.2.1 code?  
If not then I'd just rpm -e the current postgresql, grab the latest and
greatest 6.4.2 source code and compile away.  I don't recall having any
troubles building postgresql 6.4.2 on my mutated RedHat 5.1 system.  I'm
thinking quite a few gotchas were probably fixed between 6.2.x and 6.4.x.

Take care,
James
