Is anyone doing so though?

I recall proposing a couple months ago that we kill those makefiles,
but there was at least one objection at the time.

It occurs to me that the availability of the native port might actually
increase rather than decrease the demand for these makefiles --- or at
least the demand for the ability to build libpq that way.  Consider
people who are building database-using apps using MSVC or Borland.
