Something's fishy -- on a fresh postgresql-6.5.2 tree straight from tar
xzf, I cd to postgresql-6.5.2/src, then execute ./config.guess, I get:
On RedHat 6.0, kernel 2.2.5-15, glibc 2.1.1, egcs 1.1.2 running on an
Intel Pentium 60.

The fact that it is loading an existing config.cache tells me
something's up -- is this a _fresh_ tree??  A listing of the results of
'rpm -qa' on this box might be educational.

For building the RPM's for RedHat 6.1 (which, BTW, work properly on
RedHat 6.0), I used a slightly modified version of the following
configure line:
./configure --enable-hba --enable-locale \
	--with-perl \
	--with-tcl --with-tk --with-x \
	--with-odbc --with-java \

Which gives me the following output (excerpted):
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking echo setting...
checking setting template to... linux_i386

So, I know that it will configure on a Pentium running RedHat 6.0 (with
the proper development RPM's loaded).
