Like someone else pointed out, there is a pre-built version that comes with Cygwin. To answer the
question "why would you want to build?", you may want to install a pg language other than pgSql,
like pgTcl or pgPython, etc... At least that's my main reason for wanting to build...
Anyway, the "cannot find -lcygipc" error seems to be saying that this file
/usr/local/lib/libcygipc.a does not exist. That may be your problem right there. I have this
file, and I do not get this error after doing a ./configure. But this isn't saying much, since I
have major problems with the make step once I'm done configuring. I've built postgres in the past
My advice is to follow these instructions, even though they are a bit out of date
http://people.freebsd.org/~kevlo/postgres/portNT.html. And if anyone knows of any instructions
that are more up to date, please post them.
