The current PGDG RPMset will work just fine on RedHat 7.1.  There is no need 
to get anything else, as RH 7.1 is what I build them on (for now). 

Currently the PGDG set is almost identical to what RedHat has in Rawhide.

As to rebuilding from SRPMS, if you have enough to compile from the tarball 
you simply:
rpm --rebuild postgresql-7.1.2-4PGDG.src.rpm
and pick up your binary RPMs from /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386.

Much simpler than a hand compile, at least on RedHat 7.1.
