Are your referring to the Cygwin PostGIS installer from 
I haven't thought about adding the possibility to change the
data directory, but this should be relatively easy.

I've added RFE #913282 in order not to forget about this issuefor - see

However, this will take some time as we're very busy right now.

For the time being, you could have a look at the installer sources and 
adjust the path in the related shell script and recompile the installer.
