[patch] - setup.exe --mirror-list option


I've been setting up a package server that does not have direct internet

Regardless of what I tried, I was unable to keep it from attempting to
contact to retrieve the mirror list.   Upon inspection I
found that the URL for the mirror list appears to be hardcoded into the
.rc file.

I suppose there are good reasons for that in the usual case but I needed
to be able to override it.

Follows is a simple hack to allow a '--mirror-list' option which allows
one to specify where to pick up the mirror list.   I believe it might be
useful to others.

If there is a method of achieving this otherwise [or a reason why it's
stupid :-)]  I would appreciate a heads-up.
