Jeff Janes asked me about this, and Bruce just tripped up on it.
Usually on Windows it's necessary to have libpq.dll/cygpq.dll either
in the PATH or in the same directory as client .exe files. The
buildfarm client has for many years simply copied this dll from the
installation lib to the installation bin directory after running
"make install". But I can't really see why we don't do that as part
of "make install" anyway. I haven't tested but I think something
like this patch would achieve this goal - it would fix something
that's tripped a lot of people up over the years.

Comments? If we do this, should it be backported?
Andrew, where are we on this?

Hmm, looks like it got dropped. I think my original patch is probably about the the right thing to do, and given that it's already done by the MSVC build it's a bug and should be backported, as Alvaro said in the original discussion.

I'll get on that shortly - since the patch was untested I'll need to do a test first.
