[tex-live] Help! Would like to use xdvi with TeXLive2007 in cygwin

    do something to the xdvi included in cygwin so that I can run it using
    TeXLive's TDS.

If you're lucky, perhaps simply copying the executable into the same bin
directory as the TL binaries will work.  (It can then try to find the
fonts and support files by its own location.)

Failing that, all that comes to mind is to write a batch file that sets
environment variables and then calls the cygwin xdvi.  Perhaps all that
is needed is
set TEXMFCNF=c:\your\texlive\root\web2c
but I cannot say for sure.
