It appears that yum only fails to find it when trying to update to the latest version of Postgresql.

I also ran "yum resolvedep" on the file and it said on the last line that the required package is installed. There WERE also other lines that appeared to be older versions of packages which returned "PGDG83" which is a Postgresql 8.3 repository and, I believe, I have that repository in my .conf file. I can send the printout of that command later if it would help.
