Installing old lilypond version on cygwin

Currently I am trying to create an environment from which I can run a 2.2.6 version of lilypond on cygwin. The reason is that I made a musicbook with lots of TeX code and lilypond 2.2.6 tweaks in it, which I cannot convert to the currrent version. I first had some problems getting 2.2.6 compiled, e.g. because the configure script did not recognize the latest GCC compiler version. Then I had problems with installation because the cygwin shell did not allow the very long commandlines generated from the makefile when installing the mf sub-dir. Then I had problems with some code genated by lilypond which was accepted by TeX, with which Jan has helped me to fix and also with finding the postscript file by making a symlink to the it from the dvips directory. After another mail exchange witrh Jan I also symlinked `../fonts/map'from the dvips subdir.

So far so good.

I now have most of it up and running, but not quite :-( . When the PDF or PS file is produced, no noteheads are shown and with --verbose I see:

when I run `kpsewhich feta16.pfa' I get


which is the correct file IMO.The same happens for `feta-nummer8'

So, can anyone give me a clue on how to solve the problem.
