CentOS / RHEL: Install PostgresSQL Interface for Perl (perl-DBD-Pg)

How do I install PostgresSQL interface for perl for programming purpose under Redhat / RHEL / Fedora / CentOS Linux?

perl-DBD-Pg is an implementation of DBI (a database interface for Perl) for PostgreSQL for Perl. This packages allow you to access database environments in a standard way. The system implements each supported database environment as a DBD driver, in much the same way that hardware devices from multiple vendors can operate with different CPU platforms. You can install it as follows using the yum command:
# yum install perl-DBD-Pg
Sample outputs:

    On CentOS6 I get this:
    No package perl-DBD-Pg available.
    I found an rpm for CentOS6 and ran:
    yum install perl-DBD-Pg-2.15.1-4.el6_3.x86_64.rpm
    and got:
    Error: Package: perl-DBD-Pg-2.15.1-4.el6_3.x86_64 (/perl-DBD-Pg-2.15.1-4.el6_3.x86_64)
    Requires: libpq.so.5()(64bit)
    I have libpq.so.5 in my postgres install dir. Tried adding that dir to LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH and no luck.

    Any Ideas?
