did libpd4 and postgresql come from cygcheck DLL errors or previous
discussion? (i.e. are they missing from setup.ini same as jasper, fftw3?)

You should find everything much more settled with the UNIX version..

are you using this sequence of commands?

g.region rast=G_Newmap1
d.mon x0
d.slide.show prefix=G_Newmap

Without an xmon the module will fail with an error before it starts.
Does your x0 display monitor stay white? Do blank frames get drawn?
The g.region call sets the zoom to the extent of the given raster map.
The default region may be sitting near zero.
