Well it makes no difference to me, but will might well make pg_config
useless for anyone trying to use it as part of a non-msys/cygwin based
build environment for their projects. I don't know how likely that is
though - certainly I don't try to do anything like that in my own VC++
projects, but then all of those predate 8.0 anyway.
