The Emacs/AUCTeX bundle is configured with --without-texmf-dir, so the
setting in preview-latex.el is intentional, i.e. it was configured to
pick up the preview.sty file provided with the bundle.

Currently it is assumed that gswin32c should be used when the system
type is windows-nt.  Perhaps the detection could be enhances but I doubt
the use case of using an Emacs natively compiled for Windows with tools
in Cygwin is very common.

It is compiled with JPEG support.  However, the libraries are not
shipped with the bundle because I am not sure about the patent status of
them.  You can get them from the site of the GnuWin32 project.

Angelo Graziosi provides binaries of Emacs pretest versions built for
Cygwin at <URL:http://www.webalice.it/angelo.graziosi/Emacs.html>.
