pg_valid_server_encoding_id is exported by the 8.3 version of,
but not by 8.2.  So the problem here is that your 8.3 psql is binding
to the wrong version of  You didn't say what the platform
is, but the issue is probably related to the search path used to find

It would probably work to just overwrite the 8.2 library with 8.3
--- it should be backwards compatible.  (Better save a backup copy
