It is in your own interest to provide more detail respecting your
installation when reporting a problem and asking for help. For example,
are you running CentOS-6 or 5? What point release? Are you using the
stock PostgreSQl install, have you installed a different version from
another respoitory, or have you built PostgreSQl yourself? In any case
what version of Postgres?
Providing that you are running CentOS-6.x; and assuming that you are
evidently not using the Postgres provided with that distribution; and
guessing that you are likely using the pgdg-91-centos.repo; and also
guessing that you are using either rvm or rbenv then you likely need to
do something akin to the following
yum install postgresql91-devel libyaml
gem install pg --with-pg-config=/usr/pgsql-9.1/bin/pg_config
