Install issues using postgres on Redhat 9

After the db password, make initialize-database gives me

Working with:
Type:   Pg
Host:   localhost
Name:   ReqTrack5
User:   postgres
DBA:    postgres
Now creating a Pg database ReqTrack5 for RT.
Failed to connect to dbi:Pg:dbname=ReqTrack5;host=localhost;client_encoding=UTF8 as user 'postgres': connection to server at "localhost" (::1), port 5432 failed: FATAL:  database "ReqTrack5" does not existmake: *** [Makefile:390: initialize-database] Error 255

Looking in pgadmin, database ReqTrack5 does exist.

What should I look for?
