I don't expect there will be many/any changes required in the source
code. The porting will be mostly based on creating
Makefiles for GNU make.

I agree with you. Unfortunately, I'm not able to work on it before
end of the September.

AFAIK I'm the only person who maintains the PostGIS provider.
If you'd like to start preparing makefiles, I'd really appreciate your
help and I can offer my assistance. You can catch me here or in IRC
channel #fdo (my nick is mloskot), on the FreeNode.net server.
