Cygwin PostgreSQL DLL PATH (regression test) Problem

While running the regression tests, I have been bitten twice (once with
7.0.2 and once with a pre-7.1 Beta 2 snapshot) since pq.dll is *not*
in my PATH.  The attached patch corrects this problem and obviates the
need for users to add "/usr/local/pgsql/lib" to their PATH.

I'm not sure if my patch is the best way to solve this problem.  Note
that I'm "lucky" that plpgsql.dll doesn't end up in "/usr/local/pgsql/bin"
too.  Also note that I don't like duplicating the .dll files and would
prefer to use symlinks.  But, if I do that, then the real files must be in
bin and not lib due to Windows (i.e., not Cygwin) needing to load them as

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
