Several points to follow up on: ./configure && make && make install on 
slackware 8.1 also did not produce a libpq.a file which I can use for 
static linking. Tried (from postgresql src dir):

-- Cmd Line
ar r libpq.a `find /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.2.2/src |grep -v main.o`
ranlib libpq.a

And no go... can anyone tell me how to create a static library? Or which 
object files to copy from postgresql source code to be able to link them 
with testpg.c (note testpg.c can be found in the documentation for 
postgresql - my program is significantly smaller and uses less postgress 

-- Clarification

ALso above, i meant, libpq.a seemed like too little, but it was 3am :)
