Maybe you are thinking of Huidae's WinGrass ? This was in September
(http://grass.itc.it/pipermail/grassuser/2006-September/036381.html), so I
don't know if this falls under "recently" ? ;-)

But so just to maje sure I understand: I can now build WinGrass directly
with Postgres support ? We have to test the other db drivers to see
whether the problems we are having are linked to the dbf driver or to the
general db framework.
