I tried to install postgresql on my NT machine but in vain.
Following your instructions, I have already installed successfully
cygwin (1.1.4) and cygipc (1.1.7).

I started ipc-daemon & and executed the following commands:
1. configure --prefix=$HOME/local/pgsql
2. make
I fails during the make procedure reporting the error message below:

dlltool --export-all --output-def postgres.def access/SUBSYS.o bootstrap/SUBSYS.

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [postgres] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/administrator/progs/pgsql/postgresql-7.0.2/src
make: *** [all] Error 2

Can you please provide me a workaround? Thanks Christos

    Use my patch of 2000-10-26 posted on this list instead of the part of
    Jason's patch that modifies those two files in backend/utils/error/.
