Looks like the rpm you found was poorly made. Try one from here:

Note that I'm not 100% sure it's the same thing; you'll have to verify yourself.

funny things that where i got the rpm from. i think that the problem wasn't that, it did unzip but to a different folder and i had to track them down, ran the configure and i guess it worked, but wouldn't know because i don't know what i'm doing really, and to top things off i need to install the postgresql headers because redhat doesn't install them! D'oh. So i think that the beginning of my problems has just started (and my machine was running apache all fine and dandy till i started this , and now it doesn't work) Double D'oh
