Me (aka the Cygwin PostgreSQL maintainer).

Running the regression test is easy but requires the source.  There are
two ways of running the test:

    $ make check

and 

    $ make installcheck

The former tests PostgreSQL in the source tree by creating a temporary
installation, starting postmaster, and then running the regression test.
The latter tests an already installed PostgreSQL by just running the
regression test with the implicit assumption that postmaster is already
running.  You probably want the latter.
