Why don't you use a binary build from cygwin.com/setup.exe ?
For debugging postgresql service problems it's advised to use a bash
running under the account SYSTEM, which is called "sysbash" (search
the cygwin mailinglist)
Start a bash via AT in the next minute.
#define SIGSYS 12 /* bad argument to system call */
looks like you compiled your postgresql against the old ipcserver2 libs,
which is picked up by configure if you have still installed it.
