Well, hold on there, cowboy. Jan Nieuwenhuizen is listed as the teTeX
maintainer for cygwin; I think to proper course is to ask Jan to
update/switch cygwin's TeX system to TeX Live, and make the case for why
it should happen.
I think "teTeX has been dead upstream for five years" is a pretty good
'Course, we haven't heard from Jan since last Novemeber
Jan? You still there?
I observe that I installed and use MiKTeX, which is a native
Windows TeX/LaTeX, but I call it fine from cygwin scripts and
such without difficulty. It was a seamless cutover. (I did it
to have a version more similar to that of some colleagues,
with whom I am working on a book.) So ... I am not sure that
there is any great benefit to a cygwin-specific version.
