There is no mechanism to access a local postgres server using named pipes instead of tcp/ip sockets.
In PQconnectdb() all that is needed to support this case is to omit the host= and port= keywords in the connection string.
Likewise it would be helpful (at least for this case) to be able to omit the userid and password.
