Hmm, I'm pretty sure Devrim's packages split up the same way mine do,
so the answer should be -server and -contrib respectively.  Which
you've got.  You probably just haven't activated them in your current
database.  To install plpgsql you say "CREATE LANGUAGE plpgsql".
To install a contrib module you run its defining SQL script, which if
memory serves is under /usr/share/pgsql/contrib/ (if not, rpm -ql
on the -contrib RPM will tell you where they are).
