You are welcome.

I believe (again, without checking the source) that it does or will...

The above is *not* the right way to do it!  configure is a generated
file and should not be hand edited.

My WAG is that you need to rerun autoconf.  That is the right way to
"change" (i.e., regenerate) configure.

One should *not* link against DLLs directly -- one should link against
the corresponding import libraries instead.  Use "-lpq" instead of
"/usr/bin/pq.dll" above.  BTW, the "/usr/bin/cyghttpd.dll" is suspect
