Makes perfect sense, but I simply followed the instructions in the
README which were fairly straightforward:

$ cygrunsrv -S cygserver

$ initdb -D /var/postgresql/data

$ cygrunsrv -S postmaster
cyrunsrv: Error ...

I've since retraced my steps, undoing what was done and started again.
Suprisingly or not (depending on one's point of view), everything 
worked without problem.

Thanks again for the replies.
