The gv-3.5.8-1 package has been added to the Cygwin distribution.
`gv' is a comfortable viewer of PostScript and PDF files for the X Window System.
It uses the `ghostscript' PostScript(tm) interpreter and is based on the classic X front-end
for `gs', `ghostview'. It is more comfortable and more powerful than `ghostview'.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "XFree86"
