Thanks a lot Marco for this email and the one I sent before about the shared libraries. I didn't answer before because I was inscribed as digest, so I just dropped that recently and subscribed again.
That *.a file definitely did the trick, many thanks for that. I just explained what I did in the PostGIS mailing list also, perhaps someone else can find the solution there.

I'm trying to install postgis 2.2.0dev (http://postgis.net/stuff/postgis-2.2.0dev.tar.gz), but I got an error saying:

In my cygwin (latest version, 32-bit), postgres.exe is in /usr/sbin and this path is already in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my .bashrc.
How can I solve that?
Thanks for any hints,
PS: The full error message is here:
probably my fault.
Could you copy
and see if this solve the issue ?
