I ran them manually, but then I thought the buildfarm did so I didn't
bother doing it. Turned out I was wrong and it didn't, so we missed the
breakage for a while.
They were broken during the major update. I think it's as simple as
changing the way ecpg is called (that was the first problem at least),
so it's probably an easy fix.

Yeah, it does seem to fix it.
Can you put together explicit-export-list for the Unix case, using the
way libpq does it (using an exports.txt file, and then the same Makefile
rules as libpq uses). Once that's done I can deal with the MSVC part of
that, but since I don't know exactly which symbols need to be exported...
