Many months ago, I tried PostgreSQL on Windows 98 so I could respond to
a post on pgsql-ports.  It seemed to work.  So, my answer is a guarded
"yes."  However, Cygwin runs *much* worse on 9X and Me than it does on
NT 4.0 and 2000 implying (IMO) the same for PostgreSQL.

Unfortunately, I never ran the regression tests.  Since, I no longer have
access to a 9X or Me machine, I cannot do so now.  Would you or someone
else being willing to try out the regression tests and report back to the
list?  I recommend trying make installcheck (i.e., sequential schedule)
first and then if that works, try make check (i.e., parallel schedule).
