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.
I think this change is reasonable to make, but it should be in
Makefile.shlib, not in libpq/Makefile.  Makefile.shlib already knows
about the difference between a link-time and a run-time dynamic library
(not to speak of Windows vs. others), so the right change there will
make it work for libpq, ecpg, and whatever else someone might come up
with automatically.

In the end I went with the way I had suggested, because that's what the MSVC system does - it doesn't copy any other DLLs to the bin directory. So doing that seemed sane for backpatching, to bring the two build systems into sync.

If you want to propose a better arrangement for the future, to include, say, ecpg DLLs, and including changes to the MSVC system, we can discuss that separately.
