as Larry suggested, it is better that you really start
from the documentation:
How to install is here:
mtd is present both in the
cygwin-1.5 and in the cygwin-1.7 (currently beta)
and it seems to work fine:
$ /usr/sbin/mkfs.jffs2.exe -h
mkfs.jffs2: Usage: mkfs.jffs2 [OPTIONS]
Make a JFFS2 file system image from an existing directory tree
