libpq needs to link in win32setlocale.c, but that was neglected in that 
makefile used for stand-alone libpq builds. To be honest, I didn't even 
know you can build libpq that way until now. I just committed a fix for 
that, you can pull the latest sources from the git repository. The patch 
I committed is also attached, if you want to just apply it to your 
current 9.1.0 sources.

Thanks for the report!
