Notice that I do not have access to this page...

It would be good if some other people who use cygwin could try.
What should they do in order to test your packages?

You mean guile-doc?

The X libraries are also needed for building TeXmacs.

netbpm: (r)

>From the current install page:

If, for some reason, you do not want to perform a complete installation,
then you should make sure that you install at least the following
packages: gcc, make, tetex, tetex-devel, texmf, XFree86-base,
XFree86-prog, ghostscript-x11 and all Guile packages (guile, guile-devel,
guile-doc, libguile12 and libguile14). You probably also want a decent
window manager like openbox or WindowMaker.

So you will also need

        gcc     (b)

I don't know whether you may add suggestions in the dependencies too.
