Is PostGIS installed in your FGS?

Go to your FGS installation root directory
$ ls etc/fgs/pkgs/

What is the output of that?

If you don't see postgis-lib in that, install it doing:
$ . setenv.sh
$ fgs install postgis-lib

Does that work?

Note that installing another postgresql on your server may cause problem 
because it will probably end up running on the same port as FGS's 
PostgreSQL. You can change FGS port in
