describe-coding-system displays it if you accept the default (current choices)

but it still wasn't correctly recognized:

/cygdrive/c/HOME/rmh$ PATH=c:/cygwin/bin/:$PATH
Once you are in Cygwin, you must use cygwin paths (/cygdrive/cygwin/bin, or /bin). Since : is a separator, c:/cygwin/bin/ is interpreted by Cygwin as the two paths "c" and "/cygwin/bin".

But one of the bash startup files should set the path correctly for Cygwin programs. Perhaps the HOME directory is different when running under Emacs, so it cannot find the startup files?
