I just tested by setting my machine to fr_FR, and also setting 
LANG=fr_FR.utf8 under Cygwin. The build failed. The I set Cygwin back to 
LANG=C.utf8 and the build/install succeeded. After that, I switched back 
to LANG=fr_FR.utf8, and initdb, pg_ctl start and psql all behaved as 
expected. I'm adding a note accordingly.

Some day I'll try to work out why the build went boom, but now I need to 
move on to other things.
