In the mean time, you can run it from /usr/local/bin if you like:

wget -O RUN-patch.txt ''
cvs checkout run
cd run
patch -p0 < ../RUN-patch.txt
autoreconf -vif
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make install

You end up with:

If you start natively from Windows, note that the run utility, by virtue 
of sitting in the same directory as the cygwin dlls, takes advantage of 
Window's behavior to find dlls in the same directory as the program 
being run.  So by installing to /usr/local/bin, and running it from 
Windows (not from Cygwin shell), assuming Cygwin bin is not in your 
path, you lose that advantage.  Then you have to modify the path where 
and when you execute run, or using run to launch /bin/bash -c command to 
run with a hidden shell as the parent, otherwise your app may not find 
what it needs.

If you start from Cygwin shell, you probably already have /usr/local/bin 
before /usr/bin in your path, but if not, make it so.
