Indeed this step is required for postgresql 8.4.x (you have to install this script).
I did not encounter an issue with this script.
psql -U postgres -d engine -f /usr/share/pgsql/contrib/uuid-ossp.sql
And the script execution went smoothly (this scripts runs instructions of create or
replace function so it is re-entrant).
Can you please elaborate more on the error you're getting?
Here's what the install log tells me:

So, the installer is trying to create a database "ovirt_engine_test" and
succeeding. But until you run `psql -U postgres -d <database_name> -f
/usr/share/pgsql/contrib/uuid-ossp.sql`, the function uuid_generate_v1() won't be
available. Therefore, the temporary database the installer is using to determine
