I have found the following to be very helpful:

I never used the above mentioned pre-built Cygwin PostgreSQL 7.0.  I
have only been using Cygwin PostgreSQL 7.0.2 and later that I built
myself.  Hence, the only problems that I had was with people confusing
my distribution with the one on the PostgreSQL ftp site.

I have contributed pre-built Cygwin PostgreSQL distributions (the
current one is 7.1.2-1) that are automatically installed/upgraded when
you install Cygwin.

See the following for the announcement:

Note that I have a yank and put error in the title -- the announcement
if really for 7.1.2-1 *not* 7.1.1-1.  Sigh...

Also, see for more details and their very easy to use
setup.exe installer.

Yes, there have been many bug fixes (that affect the Cygwin version) and
unlimited table widths have been added in 7.1.  Why would you want to
use PostgreSQL 7.0 when a pre-built 7.1.2 already exists?

In the future, please post to pgsql-cygwin(at)postgresql(dot)org, so others can
benefit too.
