Michael,

In the future, please post to pgsql-cygwin(at)postgresql(dot)org instead of
sending private email, so others can benefit too.

The official PostgreSQL 7.1.3 source needs to be patched to build under
the current Cygwin distribution (i.e., readline-4.2-3).  If you really
want to build PostgreSQL yourself, then you will have to patch the
source yourself:

    http://www.ca.postgresql.org/mhonarc/pgsql-cygwin/2001-08/msg00066.html

Why don't you just use the pre-built PostgreSQL 7.1.3 that I contributed
to Cygwin?  It is automatically installed when you run Cygwin's setup.exe.
