[GRASS-dev] winGRASS Self Installer Package

For SQLite, I would recommend also packaging the sqlite.exe executable.
This will allow users to also create and manipulate SQLite databases
and tables directly, if need be.

Full server support for Postgres would probably take a lot of space, so
you only need to package the DLLs for client acces and let people worry
about setting up a server themselves if they need it.

I think that libpq.dll should be enough for that purpose:
