I've uploaded units-1.77-1 to the Cygwin net distribution.

The 'units' program converts quantities expressed in various
scales to their  equivalents	 in  other  scales.  The 'units'
program can handle multiplicative scale changes as well as
nonlinear conversions such as Fahrenheit to Celsius.

For example:

units -v 16.5kg oz
      16.5kg = 582.02037 oz
      16.5kg = (1 / 0.0017181529) oz

units -v 15.432miles kilometers
      15.432miles = 24.835397 kilometers
      15.432miles = (1 / 0.040265111) kilometers
