Yes, it is defined in libpostgres.a. Hmm, a cross-dependency problem in 
the Makefile. With an added -lpostgres postgres.exe builds fine.
But I'll try to add the single object file only where it is defined.

I also see that it is still linking against cygipc.
LIBS=-lintl -lssl -lcrypto -lz -lreadline -lcygipc -lcrypt -lresolv -lm

Do we still need this? As I see it, pgsql has its own ipc mechanism.
Without -lcygipc it also builds fine. ...

Sure, why not?
But I'm also trying to build the 7.4.5 now, because I want to see the 
changes in the new 8 branch. So you can sit and have a rest. :)

 From another thread...

Yes, this is apparently new for 8.x.
And it does help to be precise in the configure line.

BTW: I will convert your to the cygwin generic-build-script 
system. This is much easier.

This wasn't in your 7.4.3 included and I didn't install the 
tcl/tk sources (only under my perltk tree). But I can have a try.

I have tclsh, the headers and the libs, just a script is 
missing from the cygwin build. Should not be that hard. All the libs and 
includes are at the standard paths.

I'll finish the 8.0.0-beta1 port to cygwin, and post to the patches list 
then the cumulative patches. Questions to pgsql-hackers or pgsql-cygwin?

The 8.x build is almost okay now. Just a remaining libreadline issue in 
And testing.

And sockets would also be fine.
$ postgresql-8.0.0beta1-1/src/backend/postgres.exe
FATAL:  unrecognized configuration parameter "tcpip_socket"
