But on Cygwin, WIN32 is only defined if windows.h has been included (See
previous discussion - I recall advocating NOT using WIN32 as a marker for
just this reason).
Urgh ... so it's only because windows.h isn't included till later that
it works properly.
It's a lot more subtle than that :-( . In most cases we end up including windows.h _only_ if WIN32 is already defined, as it is for us by the compiler on MinGW.

w.r.t. Cygwin / unix sockets, the test is in port/cygwin.h, and says:
#if CYGWIN_VERSION_DLL_MAJOR < 1001 #undef HAVE_UNIX_SOCKETS #endif
I don't know how old that is.
I'm not sure that we need the code in pg_config_manual.h anymore anyway
--- the configure test should be covering this. But just before release
is no time to be fooling with such things.
I did add cygwin to the unix_socket=no case in pg_regress, and I'm inclined to leave it that way because it's really the minimal change from the script's previous behavior on cygwin. Do you see a strong reason for undoing that?
Well, nothing seems broken - see buildfarm. And if it ain't broke .../
