Hello all,

I'm cc'ing the pgsql-bugs address, since I'm starting to think it's
their problem.

It appears that the folks at don't know about
either.  Or, rather, not consistently. Apparently, the 7.0.3-2 source
tarball doesn't equal the 7.0.3-2 source RPM.

I just downloaded the latest PostgreSQL source RPM (7.0.3-2) from and rebuilt everything.  (From that source, it built
10 binary RPM's: the client, server, development stuff, perl, python,
tcl and tk, test, odbc, and jdbc packages.)  When finished, I ended up
with exactly what I had before: et al.  No
