Hi there! I don't have a proper Windows setup with PostgreSQL and everything required to run it. The custom build script build-postgresql is UNIX-only right now. Of course if you would help me by porting it to a .bat file and testing it, I would gladly accept a patch and push a new release.

If you don't feel like supporting the feature checks that would be fine, just having a basic version which can correctly figure out the linker flags to link against libpq, while assuming a recent enough version that it supports all the features would be quite useful already!
