[R] RPostgreSQL and needed .dlls

Dear List,

I am trying to connect from R 2.9.2 on Win XP SP3 to a remotely  
installed PostgreSQL DB (8.3.7 on Ubuntu Server 9.04). Everything  
seems to be properly installed, as I can connect to the DB from within  
Excel and RKWard (running on another machine).
But regarding R on the Win XP, I cannot load RPostgreSQL. libpq.dll is  
missing. What can I do now, without having to install PostgreSQL on  
this Windows, where I do not need it as I have my remote DB?

Thanks in advance
