First, since SML/NJ isn't GPLed, figure out whether the SML license is
OSI-approved.  If it is, then it falls under the GPL exception of the
Cygwin license, and you can link it with Cygwin and distribute it, in
which case read <> for instructions on
preparing and ITP'ing a Cygwin package.

AFAIK, there aren't any forms to sign for contributing packages.

Good luck.  FYI, I'd vote for an smlnj package...
