All the functions are in liblwgeom.dll in the 8.1 distribution. You'd
have to ask the PostGIS people why they changed.

To reload your DB, I would suggest creating a new one containing the new
versions of the PostGIS functions, then load your database, ignoring any
error about pre-exising functions. I don't know if there are any other
steps you should take to do the upgrade - check the PostGIS docs for
that info.
