OK, I can try this, however, this patch still doesn't work on windows. I
get link errors on windows because the the libs aren't linked in.

$ ./pg_config --libs
-lpgport -lm -lSecur32 -lws2_32 -lshfolder

$ ./pg_config --libdir

So, if the --libs is not provided on windows, then it doesn't link.
Sorry to be such a pain, I don't know what else we could do here.

This is from the pgsql-bugs list:

  Well, if you are linking statically, you might as well refer to
  pg_config --libs, or any other infinite list of libraries you can dream of.
  The main reason why this is discouraged for dynamic linking is that this
  creates unnecessary package dependencies.  But for static linking, it sounds
  OK to me.  I guess we have never really bothered to carefully specify the
  static case.
