First, "postgres_fe.h" was invented to be the first file included by
client programs *within* the PostgreSQL source tree *only*. (Remember we
annoyed the PHP folks over this but forced them to fix it.) Second, and
more importantly, it includes c.h, which has namespace problems written
all over it. I think postgres_fe.h should not be included by libpq++ at
all. The only thing I recall it needing is the namespace configure test,
which it already gets via pg_config.h.
