I'm quite sure no developers use them, or have done so for years.
The ostensible point is to support people who are trying to build
just libpq on Windows, for use in applications talking to PG servers
elsewhere.  It was reasonable that some users would want to
do that back when we didn't have a credible native port of the server,
but it's been quite some time since that was true.

In short, I think we could rip them out without much push-back.
But maybe I'm missing some remaining use-case.
