OK, good logical reason to install dynloader.h on Windows.  Also, I am
very glad you are working on PL/Java.  :-)

What do we need to do to close this item?  What versions of Windows
installers are missing dynloader.h?  Mingw?  MSVC?  EDB's?  OpenSCG? 
Postgres Pro (Russian)?  

Is this a change we need to make on the server end and then all the
installers will automatically install the file?  It is present in all
Unix-like installs?
