Hi there,
I've used the windows installation of postgresql 7.3.1. Found here:

I wish to add the postgis extension to postgresql. Install instructions below. The problem is that i don't have the source files from which to make postGIS. So i think i've got two choices;
1. remove windows install and build postgresql and postgis the manual way (though i am a newbie and have run into difficulties this way with administrator passwords)
2. keep the windows install, make postgresql in a temporary area, build postgis and configure it to work with the windows install: "./configure --enable-multibyte --with-CXX --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --docdir=/usr/doc/postgresql-$version" 

It's my first posting to the pgsql-cygwin mailing list, so I just want to say hello. My reason for getting into postgresql is to run postgis as a spatial database for an internet map server using Mapserver on winXP.

Here's the PostGIS desired install;
> Instructions for postgis:
> Move the tar file to the 'contrib' directory of you PostgreSQL support
> tree, and de-compress it.
> cd contrib
> gunzip postgis-0.7.1.tar.gz
> tar xvf postgis-0.7.1.tar
> Change directories to the root of the PostgreSQL source tree:
> $ cd ../..
> Use the following configure arguments to configure the master makefile
> correctly, then make, but DON'T make install
> ./configure --enable-multibyte --with-CXX --prefix=/usr
> --sysconfdir=/etc --docdir=/usr/doc/postgresql-$version
> make
> Return to the PostGIS directory, and follow the standard installation
> instructions:
> make
> make install

> My windows install directory for postgresql is as follows;
> C:\Program Files\Postgresql
>     bin
>     data
>     etc
>     lib
>     tmp
>     usr
>     var
