pq.dll is the "shared" (i.e., DLL) library, libpq.a is the import
library to which client code link.

My WAG is that you just made the normal Cygwin pq.dll. Sorry, I don't
know what a "-win32" target is.

The code produced by either should be functionally identical. Both are
only dependent on MS DLLs and not on the Cygwin one. Mingw is a native
Win32 app and does not grok Posix style paths, mounts, symlinks, etc.
Of course, Cygwin gcc -mno-cygwin does. IMO, the differences lie mainly
in the build environment. Choose the flavor that you like best.
