No.  The pristine PostgreSQL 7.1.3 source needs to be patched to build
against readline 4.2 (or later) under Cygwin.  I recommend using the
already patched for Cygwin PostgreSQL source that is available on the
Cygwin mirrors.  Of course, this is only if the pre-built binary does
not meet your needs.

Sorry, I have no experience in this area so I can't help you with
