FAQ
Hope I'm addressing this to the correct list...

In 8.2 (and earlier, I presume) there are .a libraries useful when developing
and linking with the Mingw C compiler (the MS .lib variety are also there).
The .a libs seem to be missing in the 8.3 install while the MS libraries are
all there.

Is there any way to get them back?

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2\lib>ls *.a

2008-03-17 05:22a 98,348 libpq.a

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\lib>ls *.a
File Not Found

I'm using the official Win32 installer downloaded from postgresql.org.

Thanks,
