Hi Anindito. EMAN2 directly supports windows (as fully as we can  
manage, please report problems), and has no
need for Cygwin. EMAN1 supports windows only partially.  Due to the  
number of dependencies, we don't support
Cygwin. Our view in general is that if  you're enough of a hacker to  
use cygwin, you should just be using Linux...
That said, it may be possible to get it working under cygwin, we just  
don't support it...
