i've install cygwin with success and begin to install postgresql 7.0.3

but at the configure step i've this message :

checking gcc ...gcc
checking wheter the C compiler works...no
error : C compilator cannot create executable ...

i've check the gcc.exe in bin folder

PATH :
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:cydrive/c/WINNT/system32:/cydrive/c/WINNT:/cydr
ive/c/WINNT/System32/Wbem/bin: No such File or directory

an error ?

and MOUNT :
C:\cygwin\bin usr/bin system binmode
C:\cygwin\lib usr/lib system binmode
C:\cygwin / system binmode

i've choosen the UNIX mode (the error occured also with DOS)

prolems with the default path definition ?

thank for help.

    Try checking config.log for the exact details of why you are getting the
    above failure. IIRC, this is caused by not installing cygipc 1.09.

    BTW, you should already have PostgreSQL 7.1RC2 installed, if you chose
    to install of all Cygwin. See the following for details:

    thanks it sounds be the good reason :

    ---------------
    1217: checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O2 ) works
    configure:1233: gcc -o conftest -O2 conftest.c -lcygipc 1>&5
    /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/2.95.3-2/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld:
    cannot find -lcygipc
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    configure: failed program was:

    #line 1228 "configure"
    #include "confdefs.h"

    main(){return(0);}

    -------------------------

    i'm newbie in posgresql, i don't know if it's good to begin with a RC
    version, so if u can say me what to do. i've checked all component in cygwin
    setup so where's this 'cygipc 1.09.' ?

    If i should install RC1, after download and install, how use it ?

    thanks for youyr help.
