Hmmm. You know, it would be a good idea, IMHO, to enable debugging symbols in 
the beta RPMs anyway.  So, I will do that for the next beta (or release 
candidate -- although, with that report from Jan, I wonder what the next 
release will be).

In the meantime, Joe, if you can rebuild the RPM from source, here's what to 
1.)	rpm -i the source RPM.
2.)	If you've never built from a source RPM before, see 
/usr/share/docs/postgresql-7.2b3/README.rpm-dist for some more information.
3.)	Edit the spec file (on Red Hat, that would be in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS, 
name of 'postgresql.spec'), adding the following line near the top:
%define __os_install_post /usr/lib/rpm/brp-compress
4.)	Add the configure option.  The rpm build process by default runs strip on 
the binaries.....
5.)	rpm -ba postgresql.spec, wait a few minutes for the build, and pick up 
your RPMs in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386.

Or you can just wait until I upload a set with that line in it..... :-)
