Yes, before deciding on where pg_config is put under Windows, we should 
first consider whether the categories should be rearranged.

I think the fine granulation is ok, but if possible, the grouping in the 
Win installer should parallel the package categories under Unix on the 
first level. For instance, the libs are currently part of the devel 
category on Win, while they are a separate package on Unix.

And I think you are right, --bindir, --sharedir and --version are 
pg_config features that could be interesting for any installation, not 
only if you compile something using the header files.
