MSVC code passes VAL_CONFIGURE to pg_config.h by calling
GetFakeConfigure() and make the output of pg_config consistent with
when ./configure is used. So for CONFIGURE I see no issues. Things
like CPPFLAGS or LIBS though become listed as "not recorded" with this
change so the output of pg_config is more verbose when MSVC is used.
This still seems an acceptable trade-off even after reviewing this
patch to make this information available on the backend. And it seems
as well that this would become set, at least partially, when using
cmake build instead of the MSVC cruft in src/tools/msvc.
