Excuse me?
openssl works fine on cygwin, even without the testing patch which was 
attached. This patch only tried to optimize openssl socket handling 
equivalent to WIN32.
Please revert that documentation.

The current configure args of the official postgresql packages are:
--enable-nls --with-openssl --with-perl --with-python --with-ldap

The problem is just that SSPI auth does not compile on cygwin.
