Interesting.  I am confused why others didn't need these changes.  In
psql's Makefile I see:

	psql: $(OBJS) $(libpq_builddir)/libpq.a
	        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(OBJS) $(libpq) $(LDFLAGS) $(LIBS) -o $@
	install: all installdirs
	        $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) psql$(X) $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/psql$(X)

Why do other compilers output .exe from CC?  Is it because you are
cross-compiling?  Also, why did you need to change the #include in
