My personal definitive version of the character has always been John Byrne's Man of Steel. There's something about the way he draws him that's just so...Superman. Having said that, I understand (and see) Cavill's resemblance to other artists depictions of the character.
My fav. Superman artist is Dan Jurgens. None of the live actions actors look exactly like him , Reeve, Routh and Cavill have some features like Jurgens' Superman but we are never going to find someone who looks exactly like that.
So, in general terms, Cavill does look like Superman.
