Has anyone answered you off-line?  I don't know anything about PSQL support, but I see that it's not enabled in the Windows binaries provided by Harry Thijssen.  A couple years ago this came up and he said:

I doubt if my MSWindows build has a working support for PostgreSQL. At least I never tested it. If somebody can confirm that it works that would be nice. If somebody needs it maybe I should have a closer look at this issue.

I don't know how easy it would be to enable PostgreSQL support or whether it would work (the Windows binaries are cross-compiled on Linux). 

If you're interested, you might try using Cygwin to build PSPP on Windows.  The installation instructions say that it "known to work" and it appears that Cygwin includes libpq, which is required for PostgreSQL support.

Or, just use the Linux version.

I would like a Linux version too, but it’s easier to build this from source.
