Ok, time for some news :)

We have finally decide of a death sentence for VC6 (php 5.3.x is the
last release to support it). Then only VC9 binaries will be provided
(be 5.4 or 6).

I managed to compile the latest libpq with VC6, it requires only some
minor changes. I describe the procedure here (not asking to merge the
changes but it may help someone reading this list or the archive): (should be pq =)

VC8 and VC9 works out of the box except that the command line options
are ignored (I will try to find the cause and report a bug for it).
You made a great work :)

I'm about to update the PHP Snapbox with the new versions, if you know
some pgsql+php Windows users, it would be the right time to test
(online on Monday 28th of July).

Thanks for your fantastic work and help :)
