Meantime I realized that at least on Debian the package and
executable are named "gddrescue" to distinguish it from the
older dd_rescue (http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/ddrescue/).

Distro / Package Name:

.          GNU ddrescue    dd_rescue
Debian     gddrescue       ddrescue
gentoo     ddrescue        dd-rescue
FreeBSD    -               dd_rescue

Keep the name ddrescue or better use gddrescue on Cygwin?
