Just this week I was working on the same thing.  

Bad news is that due to changes in the gtk+ packages that ship with
Fedora Core 2 the wxWindows code and subsequently pgadmin will not build
on Fedora Core 2.

Joe Conway on the GENERAL postgresql mailing list supplied this
information for me.  Apparently in the wxWindows package they access
internal gtk+ functions.  In the Fedora Core 2 gtk+ packages they no
longer export these internal functions so wxWindows is unable to access

Joe Conway did figure out a fix.  He created a patch and rebuilt the
gtk+ package to export the internal functions.  Once that is rebuilt and
installed then you can build the wxWindows package and then the pgadmin

Search in the GENERAL postgresql mailing list for the subject:

Bulding pgadmin on Fedora core 2.  Joe included the patch for gtk+ in
one of those messages.

I have not allocated time yet to test out the patch or modified

I was going to go look up the wxWindows site and see if they are working
on a fix to resolve this problem without having to change the gtk+
