Sure, this is easy:

If you have cygipc installed, use the setup program to uninstall it and 

After that, reinstall cygwin.

Install the postgres source and just build it as normal.

Whenever you run any of the programs (initdb, createdb etc) you'll need 
to set the CYGWIN environment variable to 'server':

$ CYGWIN=server initdb -D /var/pgsql/data

So when you install the service remember to do the same:

$ cygrunsrv -I postmaster .... -e CYGWIN=server ....

Hope it all goes swimmingly.
