libpq.a was always an import library for the libpq DLL, but in
libpq-devel-9.2.4-1, it is an ordinary static library, but there is no
libpq.dll.a implib either.  Could you please fix this?

give me some time to review again the "unusal" postgresql
build system.
When I patched to remove the dlltool/dllwrap I probably forgot something

While you're at it, is the 9.x libpq DLL really ABI compatible with the
8.x version?  I haven't analyzed them, but just from history, I wouldn't
be surprised if it wasn't, in which case the DLL really needs to be
versioned so it doesn't collide with the old, unversioned 8.x DLL.

libqp seems so, major version 5 is unchanged.
Most of the others no.


I uploaded a test version, here

that should solve the issue and have the dll versioning,
plus I removed the last trace of dlltool/dllwrap usage.

Could you please test before I replace all the others 9.2.x version ?

To download
wget -r -np -nH --cut-dirs=1 \

find postgresql -name index.html -o -name md5.sum | xargs rm
