I just had compiled dvips v5.66 under Cygnus GNU-Win32 port. It works,
but it uses Unix-style environment. So, we have two possible solutions
1) We can try to compile dvips by slightly changing settings for emx,
really needs for ugly DOS-style paths, etc.?
2) We can easy tune environment variables and config files for
but we will have troubles with appropriate viewer. I think that
to Win32 platform is not one-minute task. Moreover, it needs serious
changes (user interface, direct support of scalable typefaces, etc.).
So, does exist any project to write more powerful and portable dvi
