I renamed pg.dll to cygpq.dll since 8.0

I don't like apps linking to the client lib without knowing if it's the 
native or cygwin part.

You can safely copy /bin/cygpg.dll to /bin/pg.dll until the apps using 
the client libs will be recompiled.
But the client lib interface changed from 7.x to 8.0 a bit too.
