Ooh. Wasn't aware of that :-( Now I see what you mean.

Ok. So there are actually two ways to go about it:
1) Discontinue support for MSVC6 and require MSVC8

2) Change it so that MSVC6 can still build libpq, just not with SSPI
support. This can be done by conditionally enabling ENABLE_SSPI, so it's
not that hard.

The question is, if we go with option 2, is it something that anybody
actually will *use*?

If I'm not mistaken, one of the original reasons we kept the win32.mak
method around after we had the "complete msvc build" was for the ODBC
folks. Are you saying that the ODBC guys are now happy with a MSVC8 build?
