Ah, that's the info missing from your email to me that I asked for.  :-)

That's right.  The README is for building from full source.

And the latest (ftp://ftp.druid.net/pub/distrib/PyGreSQL-beta.tgz) PyGreSQL
beta has a config file for building RPMs if someone on Linux wants to
build it and make it available.  I run NetBSD so I can't do it here.  I
would be willing to make it available on the PyGreSQL site though, either
as a file or a link to the file on your system.
