Summary: Will not run on Windows 2000 and older, missing symbols

Initial Comment:
psqlODBC version: 8.04 0200

Attempting to use the driver under Windows 2000 in ODBC driver manager yields this:

"The setup routines for the PostgreSQL ANSI ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 127"

then another dialog:

"Driver's ConfigDSN, ConfigDriver, or ConfigTranslator failed"
"Could not load the setup or translator library"


I turns out that the psqlodbc*.dll is missing these symbols in WS_32.dll: freeaddrinfo, getaddrinfo, getnameinfo

This article explains why they are missing, these were added in XP but there is a trick to make them work in earlier versions. Basically this could be fixed with a recompile. I could not compile with VS6 but I am having a go with Visual Studio Express 2008 (I usually use mingw for all Windows development so this may not work).
