Hi,

Before you lambast me with "this has been covered a thousand
times" hear me out. Yes, I've searched the postgres archives 
for this problem and yes I've seen many similar references
to it and yes I've read the FAQ_MSWIN file and yes I've
ensured my cygwin binaries are before my windows binaries
in my PATH. And I STILL cannot get this to work. Please help!

This is building 7.4.6 from source under Win2000 and cygwin.
