Uhm, I'm unable to find reindexdb. I have postgres 7.3.4
on another server, but there's no reindexdb. Can you point
me to the right direction?

Here's what's installed on that machine:
# rpm -qa|grep postgres
postgresql-perl-7.2.3-5.73
postgresql-libs-7.3.4-2PGDG
postgresql-pl-7.3.4-2PGDG
postgresql-7.3.4-2PGDG
postgresql-contrib-7.3.4-2PGDG
postgresql-server-7.3.4-2PGDG

Old version is rockstable and quite fast, so no problem with
that.

Upgrading to 7.3.4 was quite easy here. dumped the dbs,
uninstalled 7.2, installed 7.3 and let it read the dump. done.
