So on my system, I'm picking up pieces from my MikTeX installation, which
happens to be in my active PATH (my .bash_login culls out PATH entries that
contain spaces, but that leaves the MikTeX directories).
Perhaps you changed you system-wide PATH or how you set up your Cygwin PATH
or rearranged some part of your other TeX software that severed the
connection that used to provide you access to latex from Cygwin.
Found 0 matches for latex.exe.
Which confirms its absence from the tetex package (and all other packages).
Searching for "latex" shows 27 hits, including Lilypond, MC, Perl, Python
and various tetex packages.

Am I going crazy, or has my computer lost /bin/latex? For some reason I
recall using tetex to process latex documents. However, now that I've
looked, I can't find /bin/latex.exe. It's not even part of the tetex
package. Anyone else have that problem?
