Lists: pgsql-cygwinpgsql-general
pgsql-cygwin(at)postgresql(dot)org is probably a better list for this (assuming you
are wanting the server running).
	The instructions on building using MSVC are for the client side
libraries, for the server stuff you need cygwin.
	I just checked and the latest cygwin does seem to come with
postgresql. However its worth noting that it installs to a different place
than the tarball's default.
	I do know that there was a problem with compiling psql against
readline 4.2 in postgresql 7.1.2, but I'm not sure if that is the case with
7.1.3 .
	Also I can't remeber the exact error but the socket error does look
vaguely familiar from when I upgraded to cygwin v1.3.3. I'm currently using
the following snapshot:
cygwin1-20011020.dll.bz2
which seems to be working for me.
hope this helps,
- Stuart
