I'm assuming you've remembered to link to libpq++ here.
This may be a problem with your C++ compiler. Different compilers, and in some
cases even different versions of the same compiler, mangle C++ identifiers
differently so they won't link to each other's code (and before you ask: yes,
there are good reasons for this--see the C++ FAQ :-).
Have you made sure your version of libpq++ was build with the same compiler?
