I was hoping I wouldn't have to select a particular version of Pg to
compile against, depending on what the target server is using. But
that may be the simplest option. An alternative suggested by Zoltán
Böszörményi is to install the 8.0 libpq and libecpg on the target
systems, since he reckons the 8.4 server will serve 8.0 clients OK;
or I could link statically as you suggest.
Thanks for your ideas!
