Nope. Those are the working files, not the source tree. Look for 
..../postgresql-8.0.3/contrib/ (or whatever version you installed) and put your
entire Postgis tree there.

I installed Postgres from source with no problems on SuSE 9.3 A64, I couldn't
find an A64 RPM for 8.0.3, so my source tree was where I put it, I'm not sure
where YaST puts it. I also installed GEOS, GDAL & Proj from source for the same
reason, it all seems to work fine.

If you have installed slocate, and run updatedb, running "locate contrib | grep
postgres" should find the right place for you.
