Unfortunately I can't maintain the Windows/MSVC++ project setup
myself, so this part is typically a little behind the times.  There
is now some more documentation in the README for building on a
Windows system; basicallly, doing it from scratch should involve
little more than:

 - creating a project with all source files (src/*.cxx) in it
 - telling the compiler where to find the postgres includes and
   libpq
 - editing include/pqxx/config.h, and if necessary, defining 
   NO_PARTIAL_CLASS_TEMPLATE_SPECIALISATION to work around a
   limitation in Microsoft's compiler
 - clicking "build"

Several people have done this already, and some have offered help
on getting it into the project (especially Clinton James who produced
the files in the win32 directory) but so far nobody has stepped
forward with a serious commitment to maintain this side of the project.
