Why don't you use a binary build from ?
For debugging postgresql service problems it's advised to use a bash
running under the account SYSTEM, which is called "sysbash" (search
the cygwin mailinglist)

Start a bash via AT in the next minute.

signal 12:
#define SIGSYS  12      /* bad argument to system call */
looks like you compiled your postgresql against the old ipcserver2 libs,
which is picked up by configure if you have still installed it.
