Postmaster isn't threaded so it looks like a problem with their own
implementation of spinlock, not the OS's.

One thing that may or may not help you is: can you rebuild your (exact!)
version of PostgreSQL on a 6.2 machine, save the output (e.g. with tee),
then rebuild it (the *same* version) on 7.0 and also save the output,
then compare them?

Did you look at the postmaster's stderror output?

For what is worth, PostgreSQL 8.1 works on 7 flawlessly.
