I've uploaded the latest version of mt (1.9.1) to cygwin/latest.

In contrast to the previous version 1.9 which was available on
ftp.franken.de only, this version supports setting blocksize to
0 which is needed to support variable blocksize tapes. The
feature of variable blocksizes on tapes is suppertod since
Cygwin-1.1.3.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
choose a mirror site for your download.  The 'sources.redhat.com' site
is badly overloaded.  The mirrors below have the latest version of
this package:

ftp://ftp.sunsite.utk.edu/pub/cygwin/ (US)
ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/cygwin/ (Austria)
ftp://sunsite.org.uk/Mirrors/sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/cygwin/ (UK)

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@sources.redhat.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
