Use the latest setup.exe snapshot, or the setup.exe being released
Create a setup.ini on a local web server describing your software. Read
http://www.cygwin.com/setup.html. Add the appropriate requires: line to
your local setup, which will drag in the needed packages from the normal
cygwin mirror sites.
