As a reference, if you have cygwin installed (spcifically: perl, tetex,
make, bash, sed, ghostscript should probably be enough):
install the package's source distribution and run there 'make'. You'll
also need culmus available. It should work, though in tetex 1.0 one file
probably needs editing (updmap).
Since most of the programs are basically the same, if it works in
tetex/cygwin you should probably be able to replicate it in miktex.
