Headers in the source say that the code is GPL'd.  It might be nicer if
you submitted your changes to the interface to the cygwin-apps mailing
list, so that they could be incorporated into the official sources.  At a
guess, you should only have to provide a translated resource file -- any
English strings hard-coded in the source should be replaced by resources.
The resource file might need to be split as well.  You would probably also
want to add a rule to the Makefile{.am} to build a version of setup.exe in
a particular language.
