I presume from the above that your version of Cygwin gcc is 2.95.2-7 or
later.  You can execute "gcc --version" to verify.  Anyway, there has
been a change to Cygwin gcc that stops it from automatically looking in
/usr/include/w32api.  This is why you are getting the "windows.h: No
such file or directory" error above.

You can try reconfiguring (after removing config.cache), using the

    $ CC='gcc -mwin32' configure

I believe that this should work but you may get other problems due to the
"-mwin32" option.

Alternatively, I strongly recommend using PostgreSQL 7.1beta6 since it
builds OOTB under Cygwin (and for other reasons too).

Additionally, you should replace the Cygwin 1.1.8-2 DLL (i.e.,
cygwin1.dll) with one from a recent snapshot to avoid the following

In the future, please post to the list instead of using direct email so
others can benefit too.
