Unfortunately, (for Windows PgAccess users :-) but very convenient for
me and my company) my company has completely switched from Microsoft
Windows to Linux so I cannot test or compile libpgtcl for Windows with
your above suggestions.

I don't know where that functions are used, but if they are used in
functions concerning large objects, I think that we could just ignore
them and prepare a tiny libpgtcl.dll just for PgAccess use, taking into
account that PgAccess is not using large object functions.

On the other hand, Hiroshi Inoue Inoue(at)tpf(dot)co(dot)jp informed me that he
succeeded in compiling libgtcl for Windows in PostgreSQL 6.4 beta
distribution and he could probably do that for current 6.4 tree. If this
would be possible, we may expect that the next 6.4.1 distribution will
contain also PgAccess available for Windows users.

Anyhow, I will just wait for a sign from you or from any other developer
who is able to compile and test libpgtcl.dll against PgAccess and send
to me the libpq.dll and libpgtcl.dll in order to includ them in pgaccess
distribution kit.

All the best,
