It would seem that you're hitting several unrelated problems here:

1. The include/port/win32.h header appears to try to set things up in a
way that's right for Microsoft's compiler, but thinking that it's right
for Microsoft's OS.  The company doesn't always make it easy to
distinguish between the two; you may need to do some research to find out
how DLL importing is handled in Borland C++ Builder as opposed to MS
Visual C++.  Either that, or look for a suitable "Visual C++ compatibility"
option in your compiler.

2. The unistd.h header is something your system/compiler combination
would normally provide.  You either have it or you don't; it's not likely
to be fixable if you don't.  *However,* there's a chance that the
configuration script actually checks for it and knows how to work around
a missing unistd.h, and this is simply a case where the file shouldn't
be included.  Try commenting out the #include <unistd.h>; if you get
lots of errors for undefined Unix types/functions, you're out of luck.

3. Have you tried doing a search for pg_config_paths.h?  If it doesn't
exist, it's probably generated by the configure script.  Did you get
any errors when you ran the configure script?
