It does.

Old versions of Cygwin can be made to work but it is just more
effort.  A lot of the items to be done are no longer needed.  For
example, if you use B20.1 then you need to install your own copy of
libcrypt.  The current Cygwin has it as standard.

If PostgreSQL 6 users hit known problems, do we not recommend
upgrading to v7 rather than making patches against v6?  The latter can
be done but it is not the preferred choice.
