I'm glad that you have found them helpful -- I was just leveraging off of
the work done by the Cygwin and PostgreSQL efforts.

What do you mean by "move" above?  I hope that you mean "make install".
If not, please try that.

You need to provide more details such as:

    1. exact error message from postmaster
    2. output from set or env
    3. output from cygcheck -s -r -v

In the future, please post to the list instead of emailing me directly.
You will probably get a faster answer while possibly helping out others
in the process.
