I believe it's mentioned in /usr/doc/Cygwin/Postgresql-version.README.

PostgreSQL is the only one affected. For licencing reasons we cannot
integrate the cygipc package into the cygwin1.dll, and the correct
location for the IPC functionality is to be closely tied to the
emulation layer.

There is work in progress to replace cygipc, but until then, the package
maintainers decided against including cygipc, as it would likely reduce
the motivation to create the replacement.
