it seems that you are missing cygserver.

I am just doing some testing of 8.0.4 vs 8.1.2 under cygwin and I get 
the same when I forget cygserver.

After you install cygwin, do the following -

export CYGWIN=server (not clear if needed, try without it)
unset LANG (not clear if needed, try without it)
export PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/pgsql/bin:$PATH
cygserver &

Then you do -

make install

in the source directory.

Then -

export CYGWIN=server (makes initdb use the cygserver)
initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

This should work.
