Ah, I had forgotten that connection.  Yup, it was all the same rewrite
of libpq that both made it dependent on the new-for-6.4 protocol and
converted it to use direct socket calls.  When I did that I had no idea
I was making it practical to port the library to Windows ;-) --- that
was a pleasant side-effect.

So it may be that indeed there is no DLL available for 6.3.  Sorry...
