Well, you didn't provide the critical log file:

pg_regress: initdb failed
Examine ./log/initdb.log for the reason.

but my guess based on the paths is that you tried to do the build as root.  Postgres refuses (quite 
properly) to run as root, so you either have to do the build as non-root or skip the regression tests (--
define='runselftest 0').  Personally I never build RPMs as root, and it's generally Red Hat policy not to.
Comment 3 Danilo Marcucci 2008-07-15 09:20:16 EDT
I have try to rebuild with this option "--define='runselftest 0'" and the pakage
its rebuilded correctly.
If you want you can close this "bug" as resolved.
