"Dead" is interesting. We see a lot of cygwin users having postgresql

Update: 8.2.9 is latest.
8.3.x not because the new SSPI doesn't work yet.

currently failing is: --with-gssapi --with-krb5 --with-tcl --with-java 
--with-ossp-uuid --with-ldap
(but ldap works okay with 8.2.9)

currently testing is: --enable-nls --with-CXX --with-openssl --with-perl 
--with-python --with-libxml --with-libxslt

current cygwin patch in testing is attached.
