The above is a bad thing to do.  See below for why.

The above just built a version of PostgreSQL against cygserver not

You are running cygipc not cygserver.

You are building against cygserver and running against cygipc.  This is
guaranteed not to work.

Cygwin's setup.exe instead of manually installing cygipc and trying to
build your own PostgreSQL version.
