[CentOS] Problems compiling PostgreSQL package from FC8 on CentOS 5

Dear CentOS list

we are a small software company making mostly web driven GIS software. 
We started to simplify out sysadmin life  making RPM packages of most of 
the GIS software stack. For a dependency issue we had to abandon the 
upstream 8.1 PostgreSQL and install at least a 8.2 version. Taking the 
package from Fedora 8 and rebuilding it for x86_64 went smoothly. 
Unfortunatly the same is not true for i386. It stops with:

 checking for collateindex.pl... no
checking for sgmlspl... no
checking thread safety of required library functions... no
configure: error: thread test program failed
This platform is not thread-safe.  Check the file 'config.log' for the
exact reason.

You can use the configure option --enable-thread-safety-force to force
threads to be enabled.  But you must then run the program in
src/test/thread and add locking function calls to your applications to
guarantee thread safety.

Does anybody have any hint how to proceed?
