Related to this, hi(la)tex is not set up in fmtutil.cnf so you have to
build the formats by hand.

hitex --etex --ini plain

appears to build a working plain tex in cygwin 64 pretest and the resulting
hint file works with the windows hint viewer
but latex fails, if I make an ini file to temporary avoid th
savinghyphencodes issue


\input latex.ini


 hitex --etex --ini --ltx hilatex.ini

makes a hilatex format but using it segfaults:

$     hitex --fmt hilatex sample2e
