a) Wrong list.  This is a question about an X program, and should have
been directed to the cygwin-xfree list.  I've redirected it.

b) We don't know anything about your system, including the versions of
packages you have installed.  Please read the Cygwin problem reporting
guidelines at <> to find out what
information should be included in problem reports.

c) It's likely that your problem is a missing ghostscript-x11 package.
The latest version of gv (3.5.8-1) already has the correct dependence on
ghostscript-x11, so it should work right after the install.  Otherwise,
you can install the ghostscript-x11 package, and reinstall gv.

P.S. d) You managed to misspell the project name twice in two different ways.
