If you have installed all of the Cygwin packages (as recommended), then
the procedure is really as simply as:
$ wget -nd ftp://ftp.enst.fr/pub/unix/a2ps/a2ps-4.13.tar.gz
$ tar -xzf a2ps-4.13.tar.gz
$ cd a2ps-4.13
$ make install
At the time of this writing, ftp.enst.fr appears to be offline. However,
you can find a2ps 4.12 on the GNU mirrors:
When the moratorium for new packages is over, then I intend to
contribute a pre-built a2ps to the standard Cygwin distribution.
