Thanks for the notice!
Btw., recently I experienced xpdf failing to start due to rebasement
errors similar to what a few people reported here months ago, and the
xpdf version from your repository worked for me. So I'd be happy to see
your xpdf compilation in the standard cygwin distribution.

overly optimistic that anything will happen to this bug report at all.
But, anyway, thank you for having reported!
I had some private correspondence with Akira Kakuto about my bug report,
and he said it isn't a bug. The problem is simply that xetex has very
limited support for type1 fonts, and the solution is to remove them from
the fonts that fontconfig knows about, as you've done. So I'll probably
make this change the next time I update texlive.
