Hello Tony,

the problem here is that the MS compiler has no definition of pid_t. Adding
a line like:
  typedef int pid_t;
to src\include\port\win32.h before line 111 will get you past this.

It appears that you'll also need to comment out:
 #include <unistd.h>
at line 24 of src\interfaces\libpq\fe-connect.c in order to complete the
libpq build (under VC++ at least). Lastly, psql builds with a whole host of
warnings, but appears functional.

To the community at large, I've been out of touch for a while so not sure
how best to patch, but I HTH.

Cheers,
Claudio

I just downloaded 8.0beta5 to see if I could build libpq.dll with MS Visual
Studio .NET 2003 on Windows XP. The make file throws the error:

Building the Win32 static library...

I looked at the offending line in win32.h and don't immediately see any
errors with the ). Tried adding a ) before pid, but that causes more errors.
Perhaps someone smarter can see where the problem is.
