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.
Great, but where's the TexLive Cygwin maintainer? Are you volunteering?

That would be the good folks at 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.
