What have you tried?

A .run file isn't going to install with the package manager, typically
you need to make it executable and then run it (most likely as root).

SLES11 (SP0 through SP2) all include PostgreSQL 8.3.x.

To install PostgreSQL 9.1.x on SLES11 SPx why not use packages that have
already been built and made available via the openSUSE Build Service @
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?project=server%3Adatabase%3Apostgresql&package=postgresql
?

You need to add the relevant repository from the following depending on
your version of SLES11

SLES11 SP2:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/database:/postgresql/SLE_11_SP2
SLES11 SP1:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/database:/postgresql/SLE_11_SP1
SLES11:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/database:/postgresql/SLE_11

Then you can simply install the PostgreSQL packages which should be the
later version.

As a sidenote, this is completely unsupported by SUSE :)
But I agree on using extra repos in contrast to installing a .run file etc, if one must use 9.1, though.
