I am using tex-live under a cygwin system. I found the 'fc-list'

It's not working!
I think this only recently started working in some limited circumstances
(See http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2009-09/msg00010.html), and there
isn't enough version information in OP to determine if it should work or
I'm cc-ing the cygwin-xfree list, which is where I think fontconfig
questions belong. I can confirm that on my system, fc-list produces
strange output on the windows system fonts. I'm not sure if it's the
same problem you were reporting.
For example, I get the following in a mintty window under cygwin 1.7:
$ fc-list|grep -i micro
These come out as (what I guess are) translations of "Normal" for me, so
I guess, yes, wrong charset or encoding :-)
But is fc-list really supposed to show all these translations? I never
saw that in older versions of fontconfig, which didn't include the
Windows font directory.
