There's one small wrinkle. After you run "make install" you need to be 
sure that libpq.dll is in a place where it will be found by the programs 
that need it (including initdb). That's why the buildfarm script copies 
it from <installroot>/lib to <installroot>/bin on Windows and Cygwin 
(meaning that we don't have to mangle the path or put the DLL in the 
system folder).
