I was looking for a libpq version to compile in  Win32 platform. 

I'm porting my applications from mSQL to PostgreSQL 6.3.2 most of it are CGI and run at UNIX box but I will develop a Engeneering Eletric Calculation System for the  Win32 platform with all data stored into PostgreSQL at Unix BOX.

Is it possible to get this patch, or it will be available only in PostgreSQL 6.4?
