First of all, what version of MSVC are you building this with? And what
version of the Platform SDK?

Second, is there any particular reason you need to build it yourself,
instead of using the binaries that we ship already?

And third, I'd recommend you try to build it using the "main method"
which is using the tools in src/tools/msvc, and not the win32.mak
method. It's much more complete. You can build "just libpq" that way as
well.

That's strange, because if that was so then nobody should be able to
build it. We should be getting the symbol from shfolder.lib.

Again, you seem to be doing *something* wrong  here, because it builds
perfectly fine for others. :-) Anything "unusual" about your
environment, that you would guess?

(And do try the "real" backend build way instead of win32.mak. Even if
it doesn't fix your issue, it might help with showing us what actually
is wrong)
