Wow thanks for the patch Magnus - so fast!

Patch looks great. Is it also possible to update the patch to include the win32 executable into the packaging? i.e pkg/win32/src/pgadmin3.wxs

Here's a patch that seems to make it work. The issues were:

* md5 no longer available - but also not needed, removed.
* qtIdent() was not available in commandline mode, but needed. This in
turn required db/keywords.c to be linked in.
