If you are using a package you grabbed for cygwin, you should probably be
using the postgis.sql that came with it.
I think mine was in /usr/src/postgresql/contrib/postgis/postgis.sql.

Okay, replacing $libdir with the windows path worked.  Now I'm getting yet
another error near the end of the script:

psql:postgis.sql:816: ERROR:  OperatorDef: function
postgis_gist_sel(internal, oid, internal, integer) does not exist

Any suggestions for this one?  Perhaps this is because the postgis.sql I'm
using (the one that came with the version Tyler Mitchell made available to
me) doesn't correspond with the latest version of postgis?  If so, does
anybody have one that is current?

      Actually slight correction.  You have to use the unix path I think.


      I think is what you want to replace it with if you have it in the lib

            Hello all,

            I've finally got the Cygwin version of PostgreSQL/PostGIS built
            ? yay!.  I used the DLLIMPORT command in cost.h, and ran "make
            clean" before trying the build a second time (this was the
            small detail I was unaware of all along).  Now I've got another
            error that occurs when I try to run the postgis.sql file after
            the createlang:

            psql:postgis.sql:249: ERROR: stat failed on file
            '$libdir/postgis.dll': No such file or directory

            Yes, the DLL is in C:\cygwin\lib, but clearly there's something
            I'm missing.  I've got the PGLIB variable set in my environment
            settings (in WinXP)?but that doesn't seem to matter in this

            Any suggestions?
