Hello,

I would like to know whether there are any significant performance
advantages of compiling (say, 7.4) on your platform (being RH7.3, 8, and
9.0, and Fedora especially) versus getting the relevant binaries (rpm)
from the postgresql site? Hardware is Intel XEON (various speeds, upto
2.8GHz, single/dual/quad configuration).


Very unlikely I would have thought. Databases tend to speed-limited by I-O performance and the amount of RAM available for caching etc. Having said that, I've only got one machine (the laptop on which I'm writing this email) which has still got its rpm binaries. My other machines have all been upgraded from source.
