Probably. Definitly worth looking into :-)

Hmm. This sounds exactly like the problem Dann (IIRC) had a couple of
Since they are not compatible, we need to either find a way to make them
;-), or we should probably have two different libpq.dll:s - one for each
binary format. If they can't be made compatible, we *must* provide both
versions. If we can make them compatible, and everything is supported on
ming as is on msvc, we could just drop the msvc build stuff, IMHO.
Anybody know of a way to make mingw produce MS compatible DLLs?
