[postgis-users] Postgis packages for Redhat 5 64bit, postgresql 9.2

Hello list

We've recently installed Postgresql 9.2 on a RedHat 5 machine, using the yum packages at http://yum.postgresql.org/9.2/redhat/rhel-5-x86_64/repoview/ 

We are now in the process of installing PostGIS as well.

Strange thing is, this list does not seem to contain postgis (see http://yum.postgresql.org/9.2/redhat/rhel-5-x86_64/repoview/letter_p.group.html), but is does include both proj and geos. 

On the other hand, the packages for postgresql 9.1 seems to include postgis91 (http://yum.postgresql.org/9.1/redhat/rhel-5-x86_64/repoview/letter_p.group.html)

So, my question is thus: Am I just plain stupid that can't find a postgis package for postgresql 9.2 on redhat 5, 64 bit, or is it simply not created? And, is it possible to install postgis91 for postgresql 9.2, or will this break? Don't really want to downgrade postgresql to 9.1, but if it's either that or compile from source, than maybe that's what we'll have to do?

Thanks for your time and answers
