Setup does more than just extract the packages into the Cygwin directory

The best way to handle it is to put the cache directory tree that the
setup.ini and the archive files were downloaded to by setup.exe somewhere
visible to your target machine (e.g., network share or CDROM) and then run
setup.exe and install from that local directory.
