Great, but where's the TexLive Cygwin maintainer? Are you volunteering?
My understanding is that tetex has not been maintained in years (neither cygwin nor upstream) and that we should all be using TexLive (cygwin-aware) or possibly MikTex (Windows native) at this point. My life has certainly become simpler since I realized this.
It's been a couple of years since I fixed this  on my old
computer, and now I had to fix it on the new one. Can someone
please fix the tetex-tiny package?
That would be the good folks at http://www.tug.org/texlive/. Their unix
installer is cygwin-aware out of the box, or they have a native Windows
version if you prefer.
I prefer to install Cygwin software with setup.exe, which is what a
"Cygwin maintainer" provides, so I guess the good folks fail to deliver.
Also, I'm sure TeX Live also sports a dependency or two that I would
have to install, and maintain, manually.
I realize that the discussion of TeX Live is tangential to your request,
but I just want to correct this assertion for the sake of other people
who might want to install a modern TeX system on Cygwin. TeX Live
supports many unix-like systems, including Cygwin, OOTB; nothing else
needs to be installed or maintained.
