Hm.  Given that we now support a native Windows port, do we care about
building libpq with VC6 anymore?  Why wouldn't you just use the library
as built with mingw?

If we were moving in the direction of making the whole project buildable
with VC6, that would be one thing; but as far as I know that is
explicitly not part of the plan.  So why should we continue to support a
partially-baked port when we have a full port?
