If you have installed all of the Cygwin packages (as recommended), then
the procedure is really as simply as:

    $ wget -nd
    $ tar -xzf a2ps-4.13.tar.gz
    $ cd a2ps-4.13
    $ configure
    $ make 
    $ make install

At the time of this writing, 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.
