I think the problem with the .a above is due to the default 'ar' failing
to process the Windows style object symbols.

I managed to build PostgreSQL a couple of weeks back with MinGW on F9. I
had to override a few of the default tools, e.g.

$ make AR=i686-pc-mingw32-ar DLLTOOL=/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/bin/dlltool
DLLWRAP=i686-pc-mingw32-dllwrap

I also needed some tweaks to make it use i686-pc-mingw32-windres
and to execute the compiled "zic.exe" instead of just "./zic" (though in
the end I just skipped the whole timezone installation). I also ran into
a problem with a missing definition of UNICODE_STRING. Let me know if
you run into any more problems and I'll see if I can help.
