Upgrading to postgresql 7.4 failed

My box: Pentium III, Red Hat 9

I was working with PostgreSQL 7.3.2, then I decided to upgrade it to PostgreSQL 7.4.
For that I downloaded the twelve rpms from

I followed the standar command to upgrade rpm packages and I got the following message:
#rpm -Uvh postgresql*7.4-0.5PGDG.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################[100%]
file /usr/include/sqltypes.h from install of postgresql-devel-7.4-0.5PGDG conflicts with file from package unixODBC-devel-2.2.3-6

Well, my questions are:

a) I deduct that I must to upgrade the package unixODBC before upgrading PostgreSQL. Isn't it?. If so, where I can get it.

b) But I fear that others packages depend on package unixODBC ad if this were the case I will enter in an endles upgrading. Is my fear justified?. If so, how to avoid this?

Any help will be wellcome.

I have resolved the problem: Upgrading to PosrgreSQL 7.4.1 instead of 7.4.0

Seem as the postgresql-devel rpm from PostgreSQL 7.4.0 version has a bug.
