there isn't one, really, but you could likely roll something that worked.  

Oh, and update your version of postgresql.  There's a nasty "won't 
startup" bug in 7.3.2 you'd just as soon rather avoid.  It doesn't lose 
data, but there's nothing like restarting your database only to have it 
complain about some boundary condition in the write ahead log and then 
have to spend an hour or so with it down while you download the updates to 
get it working.  7.3.5 is the latest version of the 7.3 branch, but it 
looks like rpm wise, the latest on the sites is 7.3.4.
