There's nothing magic about using the Cygwin mailing list -- you simply
send e-mail to <cygwin at cygwin dot com>.  You can either subscribe to
the list to get a reply from there, request a Cc: on replies (or set
Reply-To:), or monitor the list archives (on the web, or on if
you prefer NetNews).

It's a good idea to keep Cygwin-related discussions on the mailing list,
as this a) gives you access to much more expertise than any one person can
provide, and b) saves your problem and the proposed solutions in the
archives, so others can get at them without having to reinvent the wheel.

I've set the Reply-To: to point to the Cygwin list, and am Cc'ing this
message there.

Well, the first thing to check is: does the file exist?  Is it readable?
Also, are there filenames embedded in the xfig output files?
