That's quite clear. tetex (and any other packages linking to libXt)
should not have been rebuilt and released for 1.5.x yet. Executables
such as xdvi will be broken until libXt is available for 1.5.x (when
is this planned to happen?), and those packages must be built again.
We should find out which executables are affected, this fact should be
advertised on the cygwin list, and package maintainers must be
notified on cygwin-apps.
