AFAICT, that shouldn't be an issue any more.

When I made the Cygwin binaries, I followed the historical procedure
of: build --without-postgres, then enable it and build the PostgreSQL
driver. The reason for this was so that NVIZ doesn't require libpq to

However, it appears that NVIZ has long since stopped using libpq
(runPg.c is there, but it doesn't get compiled or linked). AFAICT, if
you build --with-postgres, the only program which will end up with a
dependency upon libpq is the PG driver (driver/db/pg).

OTOH, I could have sworn that someone was having problems quite
recently due to something (other than the PG driver) needing libpq.
