Okay maybe I have to precise more. I currently use a prepackaged version of
the SF unxtools. Now I want to switch to cygwin, because I am working with
cygwin since 2001 and it is pretty good! 
I do not want to make money with the distribution! 

For me it would be okay, if I could detect if there is a installed cygwin
with my needed utils (bash, grep, sed, awk, read...)
For now my only idea was to package it with my distribution.
So here my new suggestion:
1.    is cygwin installed?
1.1.  yes, setup the environment-variables to use the installed one
1.1.1 are the needed tools installed?
1.1.2 no, run cygwin-setup and preselect the additionally needed tools
1.2.  no, run cygwin-setup with the preselected needed tools

Is this possible to realize?

Best regards,
