I'm not a gcc expert, but from empirical evidence I was able to determine
that Cygwin gcc seems to automatically search /usr/local/include and
/usr/local/lib during compilation and linking, respectively.  Hence, it
seems that the above options are redundant.

If removing redundancy is better, then I guess so.  Nevertheless, I just
removed them from src/ and src/backend/Makefile, did a
make clean, make and a fairly recent CVS source tree built without errors.
