I've tried to view the attached file (extracted from the output of fc-list)
in various ways, and here's what I've found (running XP in the U.S., with no
language-related customization):

 - Using emacs under X, emacs recognizes the file as UTF-8 and displays the
foreign characters correctly.

- 'cat temp.txt' in the cygwin console produces lots of question marks.
You probably need to select a Unicode-enabled font in the console's
properties, e.g. Lucida Console.

Uh, right. I forgot the font problem. I'm also using Lucida Console in
the console, usually.
It should be possible (and should be done then) to pre-configure at least the Cygwin desktop link to use Lucida Console.
(And maybe an option to mkshorcut for this purpose would be useful, too.)
Don't know whether it's possible to select the font from within cygwin.bat, though.
