Andrew, should this configuration/code patch be applied to 9.4?

I think we would have to make Cygwin-specific regression output to
handle the regression failures, but frankly I am not even sure if they
are right.
Those regression failures certainly say there is something broken in
the submitter's build, so this needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
I'm not qualified to evaluate the proposed changes, but I wonder why
they're needed given that we have successful cygwin builds in the
buildfarm.
Yes, that confuses me too.  Unless we get more details, we should ignore
the patches.  Thanks.

Andrew,
nice to see, the question rises again.
I dropped from the pgsql-hackers@postgresql.org some time ago,
as no one was following the issue; I just rejoined.

As explained here:
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-03/msg00217.html
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-03/msg00050.html

1) Using DLLTOOL/DLLWRAP

"postgresql dll's allocation table are partially wrong,
so they fail at load after a rebase."

the build farm can not test this rebase failure, as it will happen after
installation at any rebase.
DLLTOOL/DLLWRAP usage is "really" deprecated on cygwin as it produces
damaged binaries that


2) I am the currently package mantainer for cygwin
last I packged was postgresql-9.2.4
9.3.2 is on my TODO list

AFAICT the regression is in Cygwin. The buildfarm passes because it's
using an oldish Cygwin release, 1.7.7 rather than the current 1.7.27. I
have brought the regression the athe attention of the Cygwin people in
the past, but without response.

which issue ?
During my package tests I have only two issues:

     tsearch                  ... FAILED
and
        test: prepared_xacts
must be skipped as it never completes


The build system changes have slipped off my radar, unfortunately. Not
sure when I can get to them.

Regars
Marco
