I have only a small remark about dynamicly loaded modules.
In the current state (in Cygwin) is postgres.exe manually linked as a
DLL, but with EXE suffix. So it creates an import library (with all
symbols exported = libpostgres.a) during the process of DLL creation and
all modules are linked with this library. I copied and modified the
process (which calls dlltool many times) very long ago (1998) from some
Cygwin docs about DLL creation.
I think it should be possible to use the same process in Mingw build
process for native PostgreSQL.
