I guess what's wrong is that you are trying to do some cross
compilation (with MinGW) but you have installed the Linux dev package
for PostgreSQL, and not the Windows ones (basically even if there was
no error with the includes, you'd get linking errors because MinGW
can't link a Linux .so to a Windows .DLL).

What you should do (what I do anyway) is download the PostgreSQL's
Windows binaries and dev files (as .zip or extracted from an
installer) and use the --with-postgres=/path/to/those/files with the
configure script. You can also download a tarball of what I
personnally use to do cross compilation at

You should be able to use the precompiled libgda libraries packaged as
ZIP files (at
to do your compilation and avoid compiling Libgda yourself (in the
same way you probably did not compile GLib).
