I am running Enteprise redhat 6.3

I figured the problem. I updated the system to point to where the libpq.so was installed

You don't say what Linux distribution you are using nor what version  
of that distro. That would be useful information to have.

Off the top of my head, it sounds like you need to install  
postrgresql-devel package for your system. Or update your system to  
point to where it was installed.
