Thank you Bruce,

I applied the patch and  found two things you might want to take in consideration :

1) dump.c Line 25 should be : 

SYSTEMQUOTE, ctx->new.bindir, ctx->old.port, ctx->user, ctx->output_dir);

And not

SYSTEMQUOTE, ctx->new.bindir, ctx->old.port, ctx->user, ctx->cwd);

(sorry, I'm not confident at producing patch files....)

2) I then recompiled pg_upgrade and reinstalled it.
Now it goes a little bit further but I think there's another point (vacuumdb of the new cluster) in which the username is missing.
You might want to take a look at this output (/tmp/pg_upgrade.log)


Checking for presence of required libraries                 ok

| If pg_upgrade fails after this point, you must
| re-initdb the new cluster before continuing.
| You will also need to remove the ".old" suffix
| from /dbms/pgdata-8.4/global/pg_control.old.

Performing Migration
Adding ".old" suffix to old global/pg_control               ok
Analyzing all rows in the new cluster                       "/usr/local/pgsql/bin/vacuumdb" --port 5432 --all --analyze >> /tmp/pg_upgrade.log 2>&1
FATAL:  role "postgres" does not exist
vacuumdb: could not connect to database postgres: FATAL:  role "postgres" does not exist


If I launch it manually adding the -U mysuperuser option it works...

Hope this is somehow useful

Turns out I was missing the user name designation. I am attaching the patch that fixes this, and a pg_ctl issue on Win32.
