It looks like we did have problems with bioseg installation.

template1=# select bioseg_create(1,2);
ERROR:  function bioseg_create(integer, integer) does not exist
LINE 1: select bioseg_create(1,2);
HINT:  No function matches the given name and argument types. You  
might need to add explicit type casts.

Our sysadmin has fixed the problem.. this is the note from him..

template1=# select bioseg_create(1,2);
(1 row)

It seem to work. I will have to redo the MalariaMine build to make  
sure it will now work without errors.

Will keep you all posted.
