Yes, it should have.  I think the issue here is that GetShortPathName
insists on the target path actually existing, whereas the Unix
environment imposes no such requirement.

Not sure if we should try to do anything about this --- if the file is
not there, it isn't going to help a lot for pg_config to print out where
it should have been, so really there's not much functionality loss
involved here.
