What is /sbin/postun_ldconfig?

Okay, I am using Redhat 9 and I am trying to install KDE from source. I know that I could just get an RPM, but I am absolutly determined to install this from source - call me stubborn. I don't mind installing rpms for the dependencies. KDE libs said that i need libpcre when I did a ./configure. I found this file libpcre-4.4-alt1.i586.rpm on a rpm download site, but I'm not even sure if that is the right rpm for my build of linux. When i try to install that rpm it says - "/sbin/postun_ldconfig is needed by libpcre-4.4-alt1" I'm not sure what that is and haven't been able to find an appropriate RPM if I even need one. Can anyone help me find the right RPMS?
