When running make I encounter the following error:

But /home/Admin/builds/postgresql-9.5.0/src/interfaces/libpq does contain the file libpqdll.def

The file /home/Admin/sources/postgresql-9.5.0/src/Makefile.shlib exists as well.

It's hard for me to decipher which file is reporting the error and which file is not found.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
So when I try to run `make` I still get that error. Please note that I am doing a VPATH build (the build in a separate directory from the downloaded sources), which might play a role here:

x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc.exe: error: libpqdll.def: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [libpq.dll] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-libpq-recurse] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all-interfaces-recurse] Error 2
make: *** [all-src-recurse] Error 2

I found a script that builds postgresql via MinGW-w64, and in it the author specifically creates symlinks to libpqdll.def https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/blob/master/mingw-w64-postgresql/PKGBUILD#L72 -- excerpt below:

  # Make DLL definition file visible during each arch build
ln -s "${srcdir}/postgresql-$pkgver/src/interfaces/libpq/libpqdll.def" src/interfaces/libpq/ ln -s "${srcdir}/postgresql-$pkgver/src/interfaces/ecpg/ecpglib/libecpgdll.def" src/interfaces/ecpg/ecpglib/ ln -s "${srcdir}/postgresql-$pkgver/src/interfaces/ecpg/pgtypeslib/libpgtypesdll.def" src/interfaces/ecpg/pgtypeslib/ ln -s "${srcdir}/postgresql-$pkgver/src/interfaces/ecpg/compatlib/libecpg_compatdll.def" src/interfaces/ecpg/compatlib/

Why are the symlinks needed to make the definition files visible?

Is this an issue with VPATH builds? It is not mentioned in the docs where VPATH builds are discussed (section 15.4 http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.5/static/install-procedure.html )

What is my best solutions?
