Building PostgreSQL on Windows

If you want to get and build PostgreSQL on Windows, try using the "git" repositories here. The repository that works with the anonymous cvs is apparently the root repository and the "git" ones are "mirrors" but it turns out that the root cvs repository has some Windows end-of-line characters that cause the build to fail. The repository you can access through "git" seems to be missing these and the build goes through. You need to ensure your cygwin installation includes readline, bison and flex.
