it is; ive made sure of that. stripped all the permissions off of the
entire 6.4.2 install tree, in fact.
manually cat'ing $PGDATA/PG_VERSION shows that its indeed "6.4" instead of
"6.5". i can manually echo 6.5 >$PGDATA/PG_VERSION, fixing the connection
problem, but i more concerned with why this is occurring.
as a sidenote, 'initdb' doesnt appear to be creating the proper pg_*
tables; pg_user doesnt exist. im starting to think the compile went
there also seems to be an ongoing problem with psql and importing TEXT
fields via COPY. i can import a relatively large (~490k entries ) table
w/o text fields just fine, but importing an 11k entry table _with_ text
entries fails with a buffer overflow. this has happened since pgsql 6.3.2
