This is the sollution but I cannot understand why it didn't worked for
Maybe it's a problem of confusing libraries and using by mistake an old
I understood that you used postgresql 6.3.2 from RedHat 5.0
I hope you previously delete *ANY* trace of postgresql-6.3.2 and it's
libraries and it's all files concerning postgres.

Very strange !!!!!
I suspect a bad install.
Are they ( and marked as execution (chmod a+x ?
Are they owned (as whole /usr/local/pgsql directory) by postgres user ?
Is postmaster running under postgres id ? That means launched by
postgres user ?
Finally, be carefull, postmaster should be launched with -i option in
order to offer connectivity for PgAccess.
