The current version seems to have the following entries:

: ${TEXDOCVIEW_dvi='xdvi %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_pdf='acroread %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_ps='ghostview %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_html='netscape -remote openURL'"'(%s)'"' 2>/dev/null || netscape %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_txt="${PAGER-more} %s"}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_="${PAGER-more} %s"} # no extension, default to pager

I would at least patch it for cygwin to read:

: ${TEXDOCVIEW_dvi='xdvi %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_pdf='xpdf %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_ps='gv %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_html='netscape -remote openURL'"'(%s)'"' 2>/dev/null || netscape %s &'}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_txt="${PAGER-more} %s"}
: ${TEXDOCVIEW_="${PAGER-more} %s"} # no extension, default to pager

We already have xpdf and gv in the distro. Maybe netscape/mozilla gets
ported one day.

Ciao
