No, it does not show up nor is selected by defaul.
In tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm there is a function platform which maps
config.guess output to TL platform names. Depending on what
config.guess outputs on Cygwin, you may need to tweak it.
Here are my notes (from tlpkg/doc/packages.txt):
To add a new architecture:
- check that the config.guess output maps to our architecture name
(the `platform' routine in TeXLive/TLUtils.pm)
- create directory in Master/bin and add at least one file
- add lzma and lzmadec binaries in Master/tlpkg/installer
- add description in Master/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm
- regenerate tlpdb.
I'll answer the other questions separately.
