I got it working easily by doing 'gmake all-static-lib' from the
src/interfaces/libpq directory.  Is it supposed to work somewhere else?

The attached patch adds some pg_config_paths.h dependencies that are
missing.  I am now wondering if we should have that file generated by
configure, but that defeats the ability to modify Makefile.global to
change settings so I guess we are stuck with what we have currently.
