To get easy_install and pip running under cygwin first download and run it with python:

 $ python

This should install setuptools and also create an easy_install script for your python version which can then be used to install pip:

 $ easy_install pip

This will install pip into your python site packages directory. You should then be able to use pip to install other Python packages.
