Does this mean that the precompiled windows version of postgresql will be compiled by MSVC (I assume you can use the free 2005 express edition), or still by MinGW. I guess this will affect which compiler one should use for compilation of C-functions?

This is not decided yet. It is my hope that it will be, but since it's
not on the buildfarm yet, we don't know.
What we do know is that all "point-releases" in 8.0/8.1/8.2 will be
built with MingW, we will absolutely not switch compiler until a new
major version.
