Yes, I would appreciate it if you did.

I would not say that '/cygdrive/c/cygwin/usr/src/postgresql-7.1.2' is
in any way standard.  It really should be '/usr/src/postgresql-7.1.2'.

Ah!  What does mount indicate?  My WAG is that it is still pointing to
D:\cygwin and not C:\cygwin.  IIRC, setup.exe preserves the mounts for
/, /usr/bin, and /usr/lib.  You may be able to get setup.exe to fix
your mounts.  Otherwise, you will need to use regedit to clean up.

What is the value for PATH?  Does it include /usr/bin?

Do you have valid /etc/passwd and /etc/group files?

OK, note that you can rebuild the JDBC driver on another platform (e.g.
Linux) if that is more comfortable.  Remember Java is Java.
