postmaster is a symlink to postgres.  Under Cygwin, you should have the
following:

    $ ls -l /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster 
    lrw-r--r--   1 jt       Domain U       23 Dec 28 12:33 /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -> postgres.exe

You should probably build all of PostgreSQL yourself.  While you are at
it, I suggest using 7.1beta5 or later (i.e., CVS) since they work better
under Cygwin.

What is the above?  That is, from where did you get it?
