Found a tool in cygwin called 'time', under /usr/bin; can't tell anything more about it because there's no manpage for it, '--help' doesn't work, and the file doesn't really even exist (!)... but the damn thing works! I tried:

jcomeau@notebook /tmp
$ time 2bit unpack chr3.fa.2bit

real    5m43.755s
user    1m55.656s
sys     1m19.774s

jcomeau@notebook /tmp
$ time 2bit pack chr3.fa.2bit.fa

real    3m5.541s
user    1m51.870s
sys     0m5.738s

This is still using cygwin1.dll, for some reason it still fucks up with msvcrt.dll.
