You can set the TZ env variable (export TZ=CET-1CED) this will make
your local time Central European with automatic daylight saving time.

If you have access to Linux (or some other UNICes with zic program), you
can compile a tzfile there and then copy it to your Cygwin's
/usr/local/etc/zoneinfo/localtime (read the zic man page).

I compiled zic and tzdump and it works fine in Cygwin too. I'll do my 
best to contribute the timezone package in the next weeks.
