  There is no init process under cygwin.

  That'll *really* slow down opening the cygwin bash shell if it has to
start up a couple of heavy-duty servers every time, but it's your choice.

That is to say, the .bashrc in your $HOME directory.

See also
which details how you could get the cygwin version of postgresql up and
running as a system service.  I haven't tried that myself so I can't vouch
for it personally but it looks like it ought to work to me....

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
