Should I discuss that with them?

Probably. They have a gratuitous variation from the Single Unix Spec.

But what may be more to the point is that AFAICS we make no assumption
about the exact datatype of the timezone variable.

Bruce' patch only assumes time_t on CYGWIN and it is only for pgtypeslib (src/interfaces/ecpg/pgtypeslib/dt.h). Not for src/timezone/pgtz.c

Per my recent post in pghackers, I think that the datatype has nothing
to do with it anyway.  The real problem is the loss of this code that
was in pg_config_manual.h in 7.4 and before:

 * Define this if your operating system has _timezone rather than timezone
#if defined(__CYGWIN__) || defined(WIN32)
#define HAVE_INT_TIMEZONE               /* has int _timezone */

I'm inclined to just put it back, rather than adding a configure test
that we never needed before.

Fine with me. I'm just doing the cygwin packaging. And I can apply my cast to the pgtz.c code by myself also. But upstream would be better.

I just wanted that you are aware of that. The configure test was more general and similar to other packages (tcl, php).
