Temporarily renaming cygncurses5.dll to cygncurses4.dll (or whatever it's
looking for) worked for me.

Actually after further reflection, there is nothing that I can do
directly as the Cygwin PostgreSQL maintainer to correct this problem.
psql is not directly dependent on cygncursesX.dll:

$ objdump -p /usr/bin/psql.exe | fgrep 'DLL Name'
        DLL Name: pq.dll
        DLL Name: cygwin1.dll
        DLL Name: cygreadline5.dll
        DLL Name: KERNEL32.dll

However, readline is directly dependent on ncurses:

$ objdump -p /usr/bin/cygreadline5.dll | fgrep 'DLL Name'
        DLL Name: cygncurses5.dll
        DLL Name: cygwin1.dll
        DLL Name: KERNEL32.dll
        DLL Name: USER32.dll

Hence, psql is indirectly dependent on ncurses.  So, I have to wait for
the Cygwin readline maintainer to rebuilt his package before I can
rebuild PostgreSQL to remove its indirect dependency on ncurses.
