If your perl is upgraded, be sure to rebuild and/or upgrade to a
corresponding mod_perl.  Also make sure none of the perl libraries
installed for RT are downgraded.  The "cpan" program that comes with perl
can handle this nicely with it's "r" command.

Postgres 7.2.3 should work fine.  I did an upgrade from 7.1.x to 7.2.1
a while back and the standard pg_dump, pg_restore sequence was

Don't go to Postgres 7.3 since RT will die horribly with it (RT is not
SQL standards compliant in some places that PG 7.3 insists it to be).
