Oh absolutely, and thank you, but as you've pointed out it's untested, 
right?  And I assume that in the medium to long term you'd rather not have 
me come pester you for this update or that debuggable version, etc.

Um, but I thought this was a postgres mailing list....

Anyway, I think this next line of yours is the key to my answers.....

Okay, so I'm wearing my moron hat for the next three hours.  I read the 
client lib instructions (in doc/src/sgml/install-win32.sgml) that basically 
say that client libs require VC++ to build, and I left it at that, and 
didn't check the directory to find the obvious Makefile.

Thank you,

Jerry
