ok, postgresql-7.4.5-1 is ready.

The problems were cygipc related (of course), which I
patched away in configure.

All tests passed ok (besides one minor cr/lf issue. see attached)

The files are at 

just the setup.hint is missing. This is your (Jason) job :)

The src package is similar to your old setup,
   (orisrc/ plus orisrc/CYGWIN-PATCHES/)
but it really should be changed to
<orisrc>.tar.bz2 and the build and patch file.

I'll to change that with the 8.0.0beta1 package.

ok, I'll do.

Because a had -lintl also, which is dynamically resolved.
your built doesn't use libintl.
I wanted to have nls support. :)

The problem was this autoconf line (
AC_CHECK_LIB(cygipc, shmget)

we have now "native" cygwin shmget support. so this check is bogus.
we really should add a check if shmget is in sys/shm.h
something like
AC_CHECK_LIB(, shmget)
