I have VC++ and have been using it to compile my libpq.dll files since PG 6.5.
Has anyone compared the DLL files using Mingw and using VC++ in terms of size and speed on win32? I'm not sure if there's any huge difference but would hate to have VC++ support for compiling the DLLs dropped without that knowledge. 
I'd be happy to provide VC++ compiled DLLs for Mingw and VC++ if anyone would like to try them. I suppose I could also code some sort of test program in C and do the tests myself.
Not sure if this has been discussed already. I'd hate to be re-visting someone else's attempt.
