There were no problems with the executables when I compiled them with MingW.
I've also been able to compile working executables with VC++ by using
the /MD option  - link with msvcrt  runtime library, which MingW and
libpq.dll also use (I found this by accident).
While this really mitigates my problem (I am able to build working
executables), this behaviour is still a mystery to me so any comments
would be appreciated.
